Happy Friday! It is hard to believe but this week brought the start of a new school year to some with many more starting next week. So, let’s sharpen those pencils and cover those books and have a little back to school humor.
The first day of school was always special. It was usually the only day of the year when I was not behind on my homework.
The first day of school is exciting, so is riding a roller coaster, but I never wanted to do either for nine months in a row.
I had a cross-eyed teacher once, she couldn’t control her pupils.
I once had a math teacher who called me average. I thought that was just mean.
One day I told my teacher that I didn’t have a pencil. She asked me, “How can you come to school without a pencil?” I told her, I took the bus, duh.
One school day I got caught skipping. The Principal said, “Please just walk normal down the hall.”
An old teacher asked her student, “If I say, ‘I am beautiful,’ which tense is that?” The student replied, “It is obviously past.”
An exasperated teacher asks a student, “Are you ignorant or just apathetic?” The kid answers, “I don’t know and I don’t care.”
Teacher: “Name a bird with wings but can’t fly.” Student: “A dead bird.”
I am now at that age that people I went to school with are so grey and wrinkled and bald that they don’t recognize me.
Thought for the Week
Education is not filling a pail but the lighting of a fire. ~William Butler Yeats
