Have you ever been at work and been distracted by something that reminds you of your blogger buds? I have, believe me! How could I not? I substitute in elementary classroom where there is always a book or a poster or a bulletin board that is pet related!
For example, she had a huge dachshund sitting right beside her desk! I was amused by this bony guy because he reminded me of my blogger buds Frankie, Ruby and Penny, Puddles, Amber, and Lorenza. Silly me started to wonder if my dachshund friends had any skills in multiplication, whether they had THAT many bones in their bellies, etc. Don't worry, no child was ignored while I was in daydream mode, people! All of my daydreaming was done while the students were eating lunch, I promise!
After staring at the dachshund bulletin board for 87 minutes I noticed an extremely adorable photo of Baby Girl and Papita gazing at me from the side of a file cabinet. Do you see the Booker resemblance in Baby Girl? And don't you think Booker should wear that party hat during his next birthday party?
When the students filed into the classroom after lunch I read Matthew's Dream, a story about a mouse whose dream was to become a famous painter. After reading, I asked the class to illustrate and describe their dream job. Of course, many of the students choose standard careers such as education, nursing, writing, etc, but one boy broke the trend by stating that his dream was to be a superhero! The only blogville pal I know who aspires to be a superhero is Mr. Pip and I so wished I could introduce him to Griffin. I'm sure Mr. Pip would've given him tips on costuming, magic carpets, and so much more!
So, as you can tell, I have my Blogville pals in mind at all times of the day and I have to wonder --- are you just as guilty?
