Here are this week's questions. Here you go~
1. The popular saying, 'All is fair in love and war' is originally credited to English writer John Lyly. Is he right?
I think this phrase is so far out of context and people use it to get away with actions that they should not do.
2. Are you a cereal eater? What's your favourite kind?
Absolutely I have even been known to eat cereal before going to bed. My favourites are Corn Flakes, Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Cream of Wheat and Granola.
3. A five year old in Pennsylvania was recently given a ten day school suspension for talking with a friend about shooting one another with a Hello Kitty Bubble gun (the gun blows bubbles). She did not have the gun with her at school.
A psychological evaluation was also ordered and the incident was recorded on her permanent record. The suspension was later reduced to two days and her parents are suing to have the incident removed from her file. Your thoughts? (If you missed the story click here for details).
The world has gone crazy. Talk about an over reaction.
4. Whatever happened to__good manners___________________________?
5. January 23rd is National Handwriting Day, billed as a day to reacquaint yourself with a pen and pencil. Do you like your handwriting? Do you prefer to print or write in cursive? This date was chosen because its the birth date of John Hancock. What's the last thing you signed your name to?
I was a teacher and I get compliments on my writing a lot. I also print as a primary teacher using the ball and stick method.
6. Speaking of John Hancock...ever been to Philadelphia? Do you have any desire to visit the city of Brotherly Love?
No I have not been to Philadelphia however I drive through Pittsburgh several times a year. I did find out about John Hancock while I was in Boston this summer and toured Quincy, Mass.
7. Share something funny you've heard a child say.
When I taught kindergarten I had a principal who would hand deliver our pay cheques once a month. This particular month I was on the floor with a group of students who were using the big blocks. The principal stood at the door looking for me. Finally one of my young students came up to me and said “The man with the yellow socks wants to see you”. Ever since that day I enjoy a 4 year olds perspective of the world.
8. Insert your own random thought here
Have you ever stood up and wrenched you knee? Well I did that yesterday. I was getting up from the computer and heard a “crack”. My knee is not swollen however walking is painful. I also had to miss dancing last night. I did take an epsom salts bath and hope it gets better quickly.
