Life in May: Day Six

Blogging Everyday in May!

How would you describe your job if you couldn’t say what your job is.

Huh, this is a toughie. I’ve always thought it was so cool that once someone asks me what I do (teaching), the only other question I get it “Oh really, what grade?”

Then I tell them, “Four year olds.” After this, I get one of three reactions.

A: The-I want your job but I have no idea how hard it is-reaction.

“Oh, that’s so cute! You must have so much fun all day!”

Me: Yes, but most days I want to punch myself in the face by 8:06 am.

B: The-You must have the patience of a saint-reaction.

“Wow, four year olds. I could never do that. How do you handle that.”

Me: Beer, the answer is always beer.

C: The-Fellow comrade in arms but teaches a different grade that you could never in a million years teach-reaction.

“Really, four year olds. God Bless You. Can I buy you a beer someday?”

Me: “Wow, high school. God Bless You. Can I buy you a beer someday?”

I get those same exact responses when people find out i teach middle school (except for the cute/fun one. No one thinks middle school is cute or fun.)
