The Fourth Key

When I started working at school, I got a set of keys. One key opens the outside doors, one opens the classroom doors, one opens the computer room, and one… well, I don’t know what it does.

I haven’t been into every corner and closet of the school and church buildings yet. Maybe there’s a secret door somewhere that can only be opened with the fourth key. Maybe it’s a treasure room!

I know the order on my key ring so I can unlock doors in the dark.

Hey! I think I just came up with next week’s writing prompt for Literature Class!

    I have a light switch in my classroom that seems to do nothing. Maybe it’s turning on the light in your secret room.

    Hmmmmmm…. Maybe it’s the key to the kingdom of heaven. We’re we all supposed to get one of those?

Deo! Day-O!

Choir practice was last night. We practiced a Thanksgiving song called Deo Gratias. When the director told us to take it out, he said: “Take out Deo.”

I couldn’t resist, and quietly sang “Day-O! Day… O!” to myself. The man sitting next to me sang quietly: “Daylight come and me wan’ go home”. Ha! We started laughing!

We decided the Banana Boat Song would be a good song for Thanksgiving church services because it’s about bananas and bananas are food.

HERE is the obligatory Beetlejuice movie clip.

French Vanilla

I was in the checkout line in CVS and noticed a kind of Milky Way I haven’t seen before – French Vanilla and Caramel. I decided to get it.

Are Milky Ways smaller than they used to be, or are my hands larger?

It had caramel on top, and vanilla nougat on the bottom. It was just sort of sweet. I didn’t taste anything special. It wasn’t bad, but it didn’t really do a lot for me either.

I’ll just stick with Twix or Zero candy bars next time. Mmm… Zero…

Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth

Yesterday I left for school a little earlier than I have in the last week or so. As I pulled into the school parking lot, I was feeling really good about all the prep time I would have. Until I realized I had left my school keys at home. D’oh!

I sat in my truck and waited for one of my co-workers to arrive. Fortunately, there’s another early bird. She let me into school and my classroom, and I got myself ready for the day.

I can’t decide if I should change my school key protocols at home, or if this incident was inconvenient enough that I will remember my keys from now on.

Early Dark

The Early Dark is here. Or maybe I should call it the Earlier Dark. It’s earlier than it used to be, but it’s still not freakishly early. Still, yesterday I left home in the dark and got back in the dark. I did at least have some daylight on my drive home.

On the plus side of things, I don’t have to worry about how raggedy my garden is, or much trash is blowing into my pond, because I can’t see them.
