…I dreamed of being on the beach. Much like today.
Huh. I guess some things don’t change.
I also regularly told my students: “I ‘aint yo Mama and I ‘aint yo maid…” Then followed it with whatever instruction needed reiterating for the 3,479,622nd time.
Today, I am both the mama and the maid. While I don’t miss teaching smelly, acne bespotted(?), caterpillar mustache sporting pubescents… I miss being able to use my old adage.
And I’m still dreaming of the beach.
