Inappropriate Gestures During School Functions are Fun to Watch!
Tonight’s argument started when I couldn’t get my shoes off fast enough in the doorway because I was having a coughing fit. I was ready to get mey shoe off alright and shove it…… (never mind!)
Tonight’s event made it difficult not looking at the hubby. There were a group of boys who clearly did not want to be on the stage singing songs. They all took a stance on not dressing up, and had parent hating haircuts or lack thereof. One boy in particular was making rifle cocking gestures the entire time as well as a unique I’m too cool for my hair swoosh move. You could tell he was the ring leader among the boys and they were intently watching him in awe. As was I.
The fact that he was brave enough to continue to do this on the stage for every parent and teacher to see said something. The principal who is way to uptight as it is, was about to blow a gasket. I would never make it as a teacher because this boy was trouble with a capital T, but he was so much fun to watch.
I would love to be a fly on the wall in his house tonight. Unfortunately, he most likely he is not getting enough attention at home and this was his way of grabbing some.
Normally school functions give me a lump in my throat. Something about those kids makes me want to shed a tear. But tonight’s event just made me want to laugh. Mostly because of the pure relief that none of those boys were mine.
