I so often don't think that Anna is like me, until her last week of school before break. And then she proved that she is more like me than ever! God love her. I laughed until I had to lay on my side and gasp for air.
She informed me that it was terrible to laugh at someone else's suffering. I just laughed harder.On with the story......(And I didn't do it this time!)......
Anna and so many of her class mates are having a terrible time in Anatomy. She is an honor roll student and she fought hard for a C-. One of Anna's friend's who is a straight A student got a D- in the class. He is one of those teachers that doesn't believe in handing out good grades. I won't even get started on him. But Anna and the group were complaining and Anna was being a little loud. This she gets from me! And her voice travels. Anyways, her Anatomy teacher and two other teachers were close enough to hear big mouth.
So Little Ms. Anna got called to the office after the class. Her guidance teacher wanted to have a talk with her. It seems that Ms.Anna said she was going to off herself because of Anatomy. And one of her friends offered her a length of rope! It is state law that any teacher hearing some child talking about sucide needs to be reported. So Anna had to have a talk about sucide. Her guidance councelor knows Anna and has been helping her look for scholarships so she knew it was just a stupid comment. Suicide is not a laughing matter and I'm glad that the school is so involved. But having a huge mouth is a laughing matter!!
I welcomed her to the world of stupid comments. I live there.
Thanks for stopping over,
PS-I can't wait to ring in the new year! I hope that 2010 has less problems than 2009!
