Trouble (271/366)

"You'd find it easier to be bad than good if you had red hair... People who haven't red hair don't know what trouble is."

- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

TIME:  9:34 PM
PLACE:  Home
SUBJECT:  StellaDella’s agenda

It reads “Stella had her name on the board today & had to miss recess for not listening & throwing an eraser.  She also asked our Art visitors if they wanted to hear a dirty joke.  We spoke about how inappropriate that was.”  *shaking my head* – Her version?  She admitted to not listening and was writing her name on the board when a classmate threw an eraser at her and she “flipped it back”.  As for the dirty joke, she said she was asking a classmate if they wanted to hear the dirty joke her *father* told at a  restaurant back in July – HH is in such trouble as well.  She said she wasn’t talking to the Art visitors and didn’t realize that a “dirty joke” was something bad.  She thought “dirty” meant unclean, as in dirt.  (Not sure I believe that)  Oh she was upset.  I could barely get the story out of her there was so much crying, wailing and hiccupping going on.  We re-iterated the inappropriateness of her behavior and discussed our expectations in the future.  *sigh*…I guess I will be making a phone call to the school and talking to the teacher tomorrow and making a listing of extra chores for her to do since she won’t be on the computer or playing video games for awhile.

Dana - I knew you'd find this amusing. ;)

I HAD to google the is the one she wanted to tell -

A great hypnotist performs for a retirement home in an auditorium fount of over 300 seniors. He ask "Who would like to volunteer?" Every person raised their hand. So he hypnotized them all. Then, he took out his pocket watch and told them that it was a special watch that had been in his family for 6 generations. He said that from now on, each and every time you see this pocket watch you will do whatever I that moment, he slipped and dropped the watch on the ground and as it shattered into a million pieces the hypnotist said "Oh SHIT!"

It took 3 weeks to clean the auditorium.
