For those of you who are newer, I am the lucky recipient of the world’s most amazing student, D’Avonte, who is a 6′ 3″, self-identified drag-queen, who basically sasses me all day, but does it so charmingly, that I love her more for it. That and she looks better than I do in short shorts, so I defer to her greatness. Additionally, I’ve taken on a new Sophomore, Ramon, who is this swaggering, sexist gangster, perpetually getting busted for drug offenses. Strangely, the two of them have become friends, which my teaching partner attributes to the fact that D’Avonte could kick Ramon’s ass, even in a wig and heels.
Anyhoooo…we were watching part of the Planet Earth series to supplement a lesson we were doing on the rainforest.
D’Avonte: “Oooooo, that’s pretty…look at all those flowers.”
Ramon: “You could get all lost up in there. That would be a GOOD place to bury a body.”
D’Avonte: (turning around) “The fuck is wrong with you!?”

I fear for your and D’Avonte’s life.
We can take him. lol
More than thrilled to have a new character added to your fucked up little online series you’ve got going on here.
Yay for us.
He’s a character all right.
I love that she takes him on. Awesome. And agree with the above ^^ on having a new character!
I think it’s past that…I think he’s actively scared of her. Because not only would he be beat down, it would be by someone in a tube dress.
Yeah, that would be hard for a tough gangster to live down.
But it would be sport to watch… Lol
Video on your blog next time?
If only… 🙂
Because obviously, we all think “Is this a good place to hide a body?” when we see any type of secluded/overgrown area. Obviously.
I had to give it to him…he was right. If I wanted someone to stay hidden…good location.
I’m sure we’ve all wished for a location like the rainforest when we’re trying to hide that dead body. Wait, is that just me?
Sounds like you’ve got some awesome and confident kids. 🙂 I love it when you find a person that is so fabulous that you MUST be near them, and just hope that their fabulousness sprinkles onto you.
Seriously, I love those kids so much I can’t stand it. Even when they’re making me insane. Okay, ESPECIALLY when they’re making me insane.
I rue the day she graduates! Having them to draw material from should more than make up for the tremendous salary you earn as a teacher!
Seriously, it’s almost worth the Rolls Royce I drive to my volcano lair. lol
Your volcano lair? What? Isn’t Phoenix hot enough for your?!?!?
We all have volcano lairs here. It’s why it’s so hot. 🙂
Ah! It all becomes clearer to me now!
Miss D for the win! And the best beatdowns are the ones you don’t actually have to do…
Agreed. The threat being enough…delicious.
You know, to be fair, I often watch a movie, or tv, and see a certain setting and think “hmmm, that would be a good place to hide a body, or a suitcase of I’ll gotten cash.” And I’m sound as a pound. Right? Eh? Uh? Can I get an Amen?
Amen and Hallelujah sings the chorus! I said something similar in an above comment. Apparently these thoughts occur to more people than I thought.
And so you have. Maybe this is indicative of people who follow this blog. Could Meg be a magnet for deviants? I think one could make a convincing argument for this.
I do all my blog recruitment from probation lists.
I thought so.
We all just have enemies who are asking for it. Or we’re all Italian.
If only you were as sound as a Toonie! That would be more! See…I know shit.
Now, let me regale you with my use of the words ‘framboiserie’ and ‘bluet’ and ‘tuque’.
I’m listening to a book on Audible right now and the reader keeps pronouncing ‘toque’ as ‘toke.’ I’m thinking he’s not Canadian.
It’s an act of Southern Aggression!
But we’re Canadian so instead of being mad we apologize for the word being so difficult to pronounce.
A wiser Ramon might of thought of something better to do in the rainforest than hide a body…
Let’s just hope that the wiser thing didn’t precede the need for a body disposal.
Don’t you love it when your posts write themselves? Love it!
I couldn’t write it down fast enough. 🙂
Now that would be a great conversation to hear! LOL!
I’m thisclose to sticking a recording device to their desks.
