DPP 2012 — Gifts — Bag of Tasks — Bubbles

December 18th…

Happy birthday to me…again!  A friend gave me a Starbucks gift card (since I requested NO presents!), and I’m so glad he did!  The gift is from a student.  They are all so excited for Friday, because I refuse to open any gifts until then.

This bag will NOT be opened unless there is a snow day.  Or maybe two.  (And there was one snow day, so I opened the bag to do exactly one mundane task…everything else will stay in the bag until December 27th or so!)

They take the test, but I fill out all the bubble sheets.  While Pal looks on, I imagine, in horror over the fact that this mundane task hasn’t been made more efficient in our current state of technology.  I tried to explain to Pal that teachers are not really as busy as people make you think, and I have extra time to fill, and I’m just hoping to fill out 21 bubble sheets tonight.  I also tell him that on this snow day, I was missing the paperwork element of my job so much that I really appreciate the bubble sheets.  All those standardized tests in elementary and high school paid off…I am now an expert at filling in bubble sheets, and can do it for my students.

Okay, I’m done snarking.  I just hate mundane tasks when I don’t even have enough time for the important ones.
