So What's in it for Me?

I got a message from Tony at Broowaha inviting me to write for his site. So I was thinking is this just a form invite that he sends to everyone that joins the site or an actual invitiation because he knows when I actually put forth an effort I can write some decent stuff.

So I messaged him, "Do you invite everyone that joins your site to write for you?"  His response, "I just had a thousand people join the site in the last week, you are the only one I invited to write." Well at face value that seems damn complementary, but that's assuming it's true.

For some reason I'm stalling on this grand invitation, maybe I'm just afraid to commit, maybe it's the platform, the publicness of it. Maybe, just maybe... I'm just wondering what's in it for me......

Sir you might wanna check your pants............

Well the holiday season is upon us, and I have to say I engaged in that preholiday tradition of Black Friday. Yep I trudged to Walmart at 10pm and fought the crowds. The sad thing is I went in there for one item...........but at a fifty percent savings I thought it was worth it. Actually as crazy as that store was it wasn't as bad as I thought I'd be. However I felt it was completely hysterical that they had people guarding the electronics but I guess that's where the crazy aspect comes in and well they don't want anybody getting killed over a flat screen TV.

The funniest part of the whole night was when I went to Kohls. I got there about an hour before they opened so I just sat in the car and waited till about 5 minutes till the doors opened. As I was walking up to the building to take my place at the end of the line........some douche bag yells "Don't even think about cutting in this line".....I returned his jackhole comment with one of my own......"Geeze dude relax.....we gotta walk this way to get in line."  Obviously he was a bit paranoid that someone might get in line in front of him and grab the last toaster oven he was picking up for his wifey for Christmas.
Really of all people a MAN is freaking the fuck out about line cutting, seriously I think you need to check your pants to make sure you still have a set of balls cuz you are acting like a freaking chick.
Oh and by the way..........just for future reference jackhole......Kohls is probably the only store that actually stocks a shit load of the stuff they have on sale for black you stood in line for god knows how long and made yourself look like a total girl all for nothing.  Just saying.

And this is why I lock My Classroom Door..........

So it's fifth hour and my bladder has hit its max and there is no way in hell I am going to make it through two more hours without going to the bathroom.....normally I lock the door when leaving my class in between periods but this time the call of nature clouded all cognitive reasoning and I simply b-lined it to the teacher's lounge.

Upon my return a mere four minutes later I find the following scenario playing out in my less than 3 students sitting on top of desks, one student sitting in my desk chair spinning themselves at a dizzying pace, another student going through my desk drawers....probably looking for some kind of sharp object to threaten another student with....and the cherry on student trying to climb out of the emergency exit window. Oh and did I mention I teach high school students? Go figure huh.
