My Principal was discussing what to do if a child brings medicine to school. Every year we have the same chat - Send any medicine to the office. But what about an inhaler? Those the child can keep them in their backpack. Well, what about cough drops? No, a child can have cough drops. They are fine. So I chime in - "Well what about a nicotine patch? Do I send those to the office?" My Principal is great, he always gives me the same grin and just shakes his head.
During a separate meeting, my Principal was discussing our budgets. He stated, "The district only gives us $76.00 a year for nursing supplies. I couldn't resist, so I chimed in, "Do we have a lot of teachers that are nursing? What do they need, like a pump or two?" Again with the grin and the nod.
Finally, and thankfully I don't think my Principal heard this one, during our yearly sexual harassment powerpoint, there was a slide that read "Men can harass men, woman can harass women, men can harass women and women can harass men. I asked, "Who do transvestites harass?"
Knowing that my Principal occasionally reads my blog, I am hoping that he will find this post humorous. I don't think that my comments are ordinarily out of line or inappropriate, so I think I am safe.
The best people in the world to make laugh is a room full of women. I'm not sure, but it is a lot easier than cracking jokes for say, the Elders Quorum. During EQ I tend to keep my wise butt comments to myself. Perhaps I should start speaking up and spreading my wisdom with the rest of the world? Perhaps not.
