A true Calvin and Hobbes lover!
What are you gonna do when it gets all smelly and then the kid doesn’t want it anymore?
Gee, what did he say?
I think this year, it’s trying to run EVERYBODY over.
Don’t forget the jalapeño ones!
Yeah, unfortunately that teacher didn’t have the best ways to teach a lesson. Another example (yes, off-topic): A student comes to him and asks “Can I borrow a piece of tape?” The teacher would simply say “No.” OK, I know why he said that because he had mentioned it before. But it’s not likely to register with someone else that may have either forgotten and not been there when he explained. Just saying no like that makes it sound like he’s being a stingy ass about his precious tape. If it were me, I would say to the student: “Borrow? So you want to take a piece of tape, use it for a little bit and give it back?” Because that’s what “borrow” means. And once a piece of tape is used, you really can’t give it back. The teacher was trying to get him to figure out that he needs to say “Can I have a piece of tape?”
That almost sounds like something I had a couple times, but I don’t think it had any prongs on it. Besides, I wasn’t a thumb-sucker. At least not by the time I needed braces and various other appliances to straighten my teeth out that didn’t want to be straightened out. the process took well over a decade. Maybe even a decade and a half.
Oh, OK. Thanks for clearing up the confusion. I never saw Zoom. Never even heard of it. And I didn’’t watch much of Electric Company, either. I was kind of bored with it after the theme song.
Oh, wow. Really? I’ve seen her in so many different ethnic roles in West Side Story, The King and I, and even an episode of Father Knows Best (I think it was that show). She could play just about any nationality. And she also gave the commencement address at my friend’s graduation.
Sorry, are you saying this is supposed too be The Electric Company? I don’t remember anyone that looked like the people in the cartoon. But I loved the theme song and how it started out “HEY YOU GUUUUUYYYYYYYS!!!!!”
