I showed up yesterday at my kids' school for the All School Sing wearing my pink sunglasses, because my boy had said it was wacky sunglasses day. Except I didn't see anyone wearing wacky sunglasses. They were wearing tacky tourist shirts. I asked somebody what was up with that. "It's tacky tourist day," a nice lady said.
Oh. Duped by my son. Okay. So I was the tacky tourist wearing wacky sunglasses. No big deal!
Anyway, I found a seat and listened to the nice boys and girls sing about short vowels, and habitats, and silent e's, and the fifty states, and all the presidents. It was a lot of information to cram into my punitive brain!
When my kids got home they asked if I enjoyed the show. "Yes," I said. "I was impressed with how everybody was able to sing the fifty states in order and go through the list of presidents."
"Did you learn anything, Mom?" my daughter asked.
"Yes. I learned two things. One, never believe Bubba when he says it's wacky sunglasses day, and two, I should go back to school so I can sing the names of all the presidents in order just like you!"
