Silly Kids!

The other morning I woke up extremely late, 7:15. I am supposed to be there by 7:30, but unfortunately my alarm didn't go off. I usually make coffee in the morning and take some to work with me. Not on this day. My first math class came in and I mentioned to them that I hadn't had any coffee. You could hear a pin drop.

After the initial shock, there was a gasp. One of the boys said, "Miss Floyd, can I use the phone?" I asked him why and he replied, "Because I wanna call my mama and tell her goodbye!"

I did get some coffee, and the world was safe from anniliation. Needless to say, the children were relieved.

I'm glad you got your coffee before anyone got hurt. That could have been a bad scene ... I can just see the headlines.

"No coffee - equals jail time for local educator"

It's a rough day when alarm clocks conspire against us and our coffee huh?

I want you to know that all the girls at work enjoyed this story to no end... and regaled me with tales of how their own children also cower when the coffee is late in coming. :)
