“So I totally put a cup of water outside last nite. Guess what? It froze! I mean, it was totally a big hunk of ice!” my student excitedly proclaimed during breakfast. She didn’t tell me….she told her friends. So this wasn’t a “let me impress the teacher with my knowledge of the hydrologic cycle”….oh no, she was generally excited to make ice.
That, my friends, is a Texas baby. I couldn’t help but giggle.
On a side note, I wanted to let you know of the snow day tradition that may not be as prevalent as I imagine. In fact, when I told The Boy about it, he was certain that my parents made it up to make me look like a fool. Granted there was the dog biscuit incident during the Browns game when I was kid, but this is not the same thing. Not this time!!
Okay, do you really want a snow day? Take a spoon, put it under your pillow, then you need to put your jamas on inside out. If you do this, you may possibly, sometimes, barely guaranteed to get a snow day!
