Thursday's Homework Assignment


I don't remember very many of my teachers. A couple from elementary. A few from junior high. And basically none from high school because, well, I didn't really go very much. I definitely don't have a FAVORITE, so I will write about the only ones I can think of.

Mr. Greenslade, he was grade seven.
And he was such a fool.
We all totally knew he stood at the front
Just playing his 'pocket pool'!!

Ms. Hall from junior high
With hair down past her ass.
And, not surprisingly,
The boys NEVER skipped gym class.

Mr. Cowan, you deserve two verses
Nope. Your slates not clean.
Remember the time I helped make the display?
And for the news photo you picked Colleen!

Grade six should have been grand!
But you liked the grade five teacher.
So the only field trip we took with our friends
Was for the year end feature.

Mr. Smith needed a lesson in patience.
I remember you slamming out the door.
When the kids played chicken in the back
Poor guy just couldn't take any more.

Mr. Meyer. Poor Mr. Meyer.
He knew he couldn't win.
And rumour has it, by the end of the year
He was off to the loony bin!


We were such good kids!! lol

For more, go and see Mama Kat!

And great big happy birthday wishes to Cassie, who's turning 12 today!

HA HA Rhonda, well done. I only recall a few teachers too. Selective memory. And they were the ones I either hated or liked. I didnt like high school either. Still wouldnt go back if you paid me a million dollars to do it.

Hahaha. I remember all those teachers, but I don't think you ever told me before about the pocket pool! I still see Mr. Cowan sometimes, and he always remembers you and your brothers. I am so proud! And to Cassie, happy birthday sweetheart. We'll see you at supper!
