The funniest thing that happened today...

It's always surprised me how I often find what I'm looking for. (As a result, I'm careful what I look for, because I know I might find it.)

Today I went looking for something funny. This fall I started teaching at a new school. At my previous school, a junior high, I would consistently come home with the-funniest-thing-Cathy-said-today. Cathy worked as an aide in my classroom. She stayed at the junior high and I miss her comedy. So... I went hunting for comedy at my new school today, and I found some.

The funniest thing that happened today happened while I was talking to my principal. We were standing on a sidewalk, and there was a group of students behind her. In the middle of our conversation, she says, "Ew. Did you hear that student behind us sneeze? Something wet and warm just hit me on the ankle." A new occupational hazard: snot projectiles.

Now granted this is not a Jay-Leno-joke type of funny. This is a still-makes-me-grin eight hours later type of funny. It was the funniest thing that happened today.

Tomorrow, I'm going "hunting" again. Wonder what I'll find?

  1. I think the funniest thing is that the principal actually said the word 'ew.' LOL!

    In education, there's comedy around every corner. How about the day this summer a kid played tic-tac-toe with himself, only to lose?
