After all that...

It seems that my gym-teacher career is already over.

Sob.

Yes. I went into the school to discuss the position and my starting date, and found that the principal had forgotten that I had volunteered for the position.
She had already found someone else.
So I am replaced.

And I had that cool whistle just waiting to be used.

And I came clean with ya'll unnecessarily about my overly-competitive spirit.

Darn.

Just pretend you never read any of that stuff, okay?

PS: Just to clarify....I was chaperone at a high school/college age camp. The girl I pushed was bigger than me. Wouldn't want you to think I would push a small child into a snow bank. I do have some self-control.

What a humbling experience, Karin.

But I have a feeling this is what you were secretly praying for all along... weren't you?

I thought so.

But what's to become of Hans & Franz now?

You just gained a couple more hours of alone time. And for that, I don't know if I can tolerate you much longer.

Of course I'm kidding.

And I'm also sitting here trying to get a certain girl (whose name rhymes with goosey) to do her schoolwork.

So, as you can understand, I'm feeling a bit bitter at the moment.

Have a wonderful day...by yourself.

Sigh.

I say you break out that whistle at home. Remember the Sound of Music??

i'm laughing with you.

you ARE laughing, right?! i hope. :)

you still need to see Sky High. {it's a kids movie rated pg.}
i'll let you decide if you are the "superhero" OR the "sidekick".
you'll just have to watch it to know what i'm talking about...hehe.

Oh, I would definitely find another use for that whistle. I am with Angie, use it on your kids at home. I think I will get myself one. It certainly beats screaming up the stairs when I need the kids' attention.

Sorry about the gym teacher job. Maybe you can be a substitute teacher?

Lori, to quote Chonda Pierce:

"You're not bitter, you're just sharin' your testimony"

It sounds so much better that way, especially if you add the Southern accent when you say it :)

Karin, toot away!! I'm sure the dog will love that whistle :)

I don't have a clue what you are talking about;) What PE teacher job?

Kim K. said...

Darn. Double darn. I was looking forward to all kinds of PE adventures.

sara said...

LOL! and UGH!

but I think you need to learn how to use the whistle like captain von trapp...each kid needs their own whistle call...

...no use wasting a good whistle!!!

Karin, even if you didn't get the job, you (once again) provided some comedy relief! I say you go apply for a job on an Oncology Unit! They say had laughter is good for cancer patients. You have certainly raised my spirits on many a day! Love Ya!

So sorry it ended so soon!

I'm surprised you didn't put up a stink! Does that other volunteer understand your competitive nature? She better watch her back AND her volunteer job!

Use the whistle to call the kids for meals!
