So last night at 10pm all of us teachers were notified that we were required to attend a soccer game the next morning. And even if we had purchased Imax tickets weeks ago, to see Dark Knight Rises, they’d fire us if we didn’t show. I am still going to check for where in the contract it says mandatory, last minute, unpaid, Saturday morning events. But I played it safe today and just went to the damn soccer game.
Besides the heat, it wasn’t that bad. And it was good to see the kids outside of class. Basically, all we did was smile at the kids’ parents and look White and teacherly. But wow, just throwing “termination” and “deportation” out there, right off the bat was a little harsh.
I just barely made it to the show that Paul and his friends in Chonan had bought tickets for, and buckled in for three hours of unprecedented story telling. There are no words to describe how phenomenal Dark Knight Rises was!!!!! GO SEE IT NOW!
Instead of packaged brownies or those little barrels of kool-aid, the kids were given fried chicken and coke, after the game. I’m not sure which is worse for you but they didn’t exactly seem refreshed…someone hand these kids a Capri Sun.
This conveyor belt-serving sushi restaurant was cool at first, but then I wondered how many laps the fishy morsels had done before we got there. And how the uncovered sushi was out getting breathed on by every customer it passed…and quickly lost my appetite.
