Me: Before I sign this screen verification form for the school, do you have COVID?

Maggie: No.

Me: Okay, just making sure.

I just printed a four page document from the Geneva School District regarding the ongoing teacher’s strike in Geneva. I asked Maggie to read and condense into a two paragraph written summary. I figure she’s been off school from the strike for over a week, she needed an assignment.

Hilarity did not ensue when I gave her the homework.

Throw it out and have her go to https://www.gea4students.org/ and watch Kevin Gannon’s videos. The BOE lies.

Stuck behind a school bus

tcr! · Sep 12, 2018 at 11:26 am

Audio (MP3): 20180912 - Stuck behind a school bus

Sometimes when I’m going to work I get stuck behind a school bus. And then I roll my eyes… Today I watched a handful of parents corralling their kids, funneling them toward the awaiting bus. There were enough kids that I needed to count them so as to know when I could be on my way.

๐ŸšŒ

And then everything changed.

Two of the kids were swaying, almost dancing. Little horses waiting to run. Smiles on their little faces, overly eager happiness as they waited their turn to board. Their day ahead would be magical. It already was.

“We’re gonna do math and reading and writing and maybe some science.”

Yellow school buses

The closest one looks like it’s smiling at me. Like the duck in A Christmas Story.

Okay, not like the duck in A Christmas Story.

GMSS voicemail instructions

GMSS voicemail instructions

Maggie is home sick today so I needed to call her school’s attendance voicemail line to let them know.

It’s been over a minute of listening to specific instructions on how to leave my voicemail. Pretty sure I’ve heard the phrase “Kane County Health Department” at least twice, too. ๐Ÿ™„

I’m praying I don’t need to use the keypad to transmit her vitals.

school bus diagonal in the driveway

It’s always weird to me when the neighbor parks her school bus in her driveway. All diagonal and shit. Seriously though, I look out the window and boom, big yellow banana bus staring me down sideways.

This is all starting to remind me of the Hills in Ottumwa…

If memory serves, Leonard knocked out my dad’s front teeth and then later when he got shot my mom his nurse.
