No Violence or Drinking, But...

Regarding my volunteering at the school yesterday, let me say this: it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Oh sure, I got a little fed up with one mother who constantly bitched and complained about everything. Yes, the stuff was basically high-priced Dollar Store crap, but the kids found things they could afford and had a really good time.

When my friend NutterButter asked this other mother what her problem was, I piped up with "It's a day that ends in a Y. What other reason does she need?"

I think that pissed other mother off, but I don't care. I was there to wrap presents for the kids, not gripe about the PTO president (The Grand Tampon).

But the kids! Ohmygosh, the preschool kids came in and they are so little! One little guy shares the name of a fellow blogger and I thought that was so cool! I made a comment about it, and the Other Mother said "Like oregano?" I gave her a look and said "No, more like Basil Rathbone!


Son's class was the first class to come in, and thanks to my savvy eye, one of the moms helping the kids shop took him to just the right stuff. He was so cute; I wanted to go kiss his face! My boy!

Anyway, it was a pretty good day. I was only there for three hours, so I have nothing, really, to complain about.

Oh, glad it wasn't too hellish. I got your box today but I haven't opened it yet.

"....one mother who constantly bitched and complained about everything."

A Liberal Mom, no doubt (heh!)
