Last Friday was our 8th grade picnic: during 5th & 6th periods all the eligible 8th graders who bought tickets were allowed to go to the sports field where they had a couple of jumpers, a sumo wrestling setup, pizza and a stand for bottled water.
8th graders being what they are, a few of them decided the ideal use for the bottled water would be to pour it all over each other. I managed to pull a couple of them aside to discuss the wisdom of using $1/bottle water for this purpose.
As I was doing this, another teacher walked up behind me and dumped a bottle of water over my head.
Really. Another teacher. And we hadn’t even won anything.
