The most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to me took place when my son was in eighth grade. I was fortunate in that for the first six years of my teaching career my children were able to attend the school in which I taught. I did not have to worry about before and after school care, and we had the same days off each year. I also had the pleasure of being my children’s 8th grade Language Arts and history teacher. My children might have another opinion as to whether or not it was a pleasure to have their mom as a teacher. They could not get away with anything!
The incident in question happened one day in the middle of one of my son’s Language Arts classes. One of the guys decided he should “break wind”. Gross! Something most 8th grade boys or just boys in general think is funny. With a disgusted look on my face, I walked over to the window and opened it. My son immediately piped up.
”What’s the big deal?” he asked. “That’s the first thing you do at night when we get into the car to go home at the end of the day!”
The class had a great laugh at my expense. Mortified, I laughed along with them.
When my son and I got into the car to go home that night, I quickly engaged the child lock on the power windows.
“Oh my god!” my son shouted.
Ahhhhhh! Sweet revenge! “That will teach you,” I thought.
Here is my card today. I call it Lovely As A Tree Meets Festival of Trees. I’ve paired an oldie but goodie which can be found in the Annual Catalog with a new set from the current Holiday Catalog.
I will admit the lighting on this isn’t that great. That’s because I loaned my digital camera to my son to use while student teaching to record some of his lessons. That leaves me with my cell phone camera which does an okay job, but my other camera has a flash on it. The things we do for our children! If only I would have the opportunity to embarrass him in front of his class as he did me when he was in 8th grade! You never know! Maybe when he gets a job I will pay him a visit one day. 🙂
I did some heat embossing on this. That seems like the thing for me to do these days. I’ve rediscovered heat embossing. Sorry, but the Pool Party Seam Binding is no longer available, but this color is available in the cotton ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed your visit here today. Please let me know what you think of my creation…and my story if you like. Thanks for visiting and until next time…
