    “Whale”, Lard. Not “well.”

    Go with that, Connie. So few people are good at being single. They either turn bitter or…well, turn bitter. Yes, it’s because of society’s expectations. But as an elderly friend of mine said, she realised when she turned 30 (in those days 30 was entering middle age) that she could either be bitter, or realise that she was free and independent. She sold up and moved to Argentina. Later, she travelled to Spain and settled there. When she retired, she went back home with a heart full of excellent memories.

    Depending on the school district, they’re looking at suspension without pay, peer review and quite possibly unemployment and unofficial blacklisting. Supposedly blacklisting doesn’t happen…but word gets around.

    I’m not saying that’s the right response; but it does happen.

    I now use a whiteboard in class. I’ve learned to invest in the expensive markers; cheap ones irritate my skin. Must give off some kind of chemical vapor or something.

    In my parents’ day (1930s), apparently being sent out to clap erasers was more of a punishment…maybe a time-out. For me in the 60s, it was a privilege. We were sent out either alone or in pairs at recess time. The school was red-brick and if the erasers were particularly dusty, some students would make a design on the wall with the chalk dust.

    The old felt erasers were a pain because they dirtied the board more than they cleaned it. The best were the foam-rubber ones that had a kind of chamois leather on one side. That really cleaned up the board and made it a pleasure to write on, but the teacher usually reserved that one for her own use.

    Except he’s not naked, unless you count wearing hosen, short pantaloons, a long-sleeved jerkin, a fur neckpiece, and a cape as “naked.”
