I have been in a funk lately. It usually happens this time of year. I don't have a window in my office, and when kids are crazy, I don't get out of my office. When I don't get out of my office, I don't get sun. It's seasonal affective disorder. I have self diagnosed. So today, I was in a rare mood. I did announcements this am ( don't ask.....it's full circle I tell ya. Senior year, Mt. Markham, morning announcements. 2008, many moons later, morning announcements. It's almost comical). From there, another co-worker and I decided to use SAT caliber words. I think I trumped her with the word illbegotten, used in context. Next, I answered my office phone ( it was a teacher call) in Francais......Bon jour, ici Dana, et vous? He was very confused. I am still laughing.
Sometimes my job is very serious ( suicidal kids, kids that cut, families in crisis), so sometimes it is just fun to be silly and make others and myself laugh.
