One of the great, beautiful parts of being a teacher is enjoying a snow day. It’s on of the perks of educating the little snowflakes-a day of hot chocolate and nothingness. Bless it. There’s a specific process I follow when I hear that there may be snow in my life.
- Seeing snow in the forecast.
Don’t play with my heart.
- Seeing the first snow flake hit the ground.
Did you see that? I saw that. Cancel everything. Cancel it all.
- Waiting for the phone to ring to anounce the delay.
Ring….NOW. Ring….NOW. RING, DAMN YOU.
- When the phone finally rings while you’re in the bathroom and you have to go get it.
EVERYONE MOVE! GET OUT OF THE WAY! MOVE!
5. When you hear the magical words, “School will be closed today”
6. What we do during a snow day.
Better eat everything in the house, just in case the power goes out and we have to go into hibernation.
7. Realizing that we must return to school tomorrow…
Just openly weeping in our shower jorts.
8. Going to school the day after a snow day.
Bathe in the coffee. Bathe in it.
9. Resume prayer for the next snow day.
