First week back, folks…first week back.
(While prepping them to write a friendly letter to themselves, about what three New Year’s Resolutions they’d like to take for 2015.)
Me: “Before you start, I want you to jot down three resolutions that you’re going to include in the body of your letter. Remember, two things you want to change…one thing you want to learn. Would any of you like to share one of your ideas? I’ll start with one of mine…I’m going to read at least twenty-three books before school ends in May.”
D’Avonte: “Twenty-three books!?”
Me: “One for every week between now and summer.”
D’Avonte: “That’s crazy.”
Me: “Well, what did you put?”
D’Avonte: “Keep bein’ fierce, become famous, and get myself a man.”
Me: “I need you to pick two things you’re going to CHANGE, and one thing you want to learn. What do you want to learn?”
D’Avonte: “If I tell you what I want to learn, you’re going to write me a referral.”
Me: (sigh) “Then I suggest you think of something that WON’T get you a referral.”
D’Avonte: (rolling eyes) “Fiiiiiine, ‘learn to drive’.”
Me: “Thank you, sweetie.” (walking away)
D’Avonte: (under her breath) “Like that’s more important than learning to be better in bed.”

It’s a fair point, no? 🙂
Oh, totally…but I have to hold the party line and pretend offense. *sigh*
I started driving at the age of 18 and it took me YEARS to realize that my driving/bedroom skills priorities were all screwed up. Power to D’Avonte for realizing it so early in life!
Well, if you’re good at one, maybe you don’t need the other, because you’re going to get driven everywhere? (I’m reaching…but it could be true.)
LOL nice try my darling, but you, me and the gods of orgasm all know that that’s crap!
Damn it…. 🙂
That D’Avonte gets me every damn time! He’s ridiculous, and i love it!
Seriously, IMPOSSIBLE to get angry. Lol.
Fingers crossed he is not multitasking both goals at once.
I liked your response: not rejecting her goals but pointing out that they didn’t technically meet the criteria of the assignment.
Sometimes it’s easier to play deaf. Lol
LOL… He wanted you to write a referral for being better in bed? Too bloody camp before my second cup of coffee in the morning.
Welcome to what was my Monday. 🙂
D’Avonte’s right, you know. But there is that back seat thing. Or is that a ‘thing’ of the past. 🙂 –Curt
Does D’avonte know she’s already famous? Or at least, infamous?
If she did…we wouldn’t be able to deal with her. You have no IDEA the stuff I *can’t* put on here. 🙂
