Monday Morning Musing... thoughts and observations of the past week
*Whatever happened to manners? Maybe it’s because I spend so much time living in the past vicariously through my characters, but… Why does my son’s schoolteacher—a woman a good 15 years my junior—think it’s okay to call me Nicole when I’ve not invited her to do so and always call her Miss So and So? My younger son’s teacher is a good 15 years my senior and she calls me Mrs. Hmm…Maybe I’m an old fuddy duddy. But if you happen to see Common Courtesy out there, will you tell it I’m looking for it?
*Speaking of school…which is worse, that I have the middle school principal (where my oldest attends) on speed dial on my cell phone… or that the principal of the grammar school my youngest attends has me on hers? Hmmm.
*McCaffrey’s Law: the same husband who treats Christmas and birthday gifts as an afterthought will go overboard on Valentine’s Day… especially when you didn’t get him anything.
*February recess. Yes, the kiddies here are off from school all week. Who invented this form of parental torture anyway? I’m betting it was Uncle Walt himself, since this is one of the busiest weeks of the year at Disneyworld.
*How many more days until February recess is over?
