Tomorrow is the last day of school. Today, Thing One and his classmates collectively gave their homeroom teacher, a man whom they like very much, the following gifts:
1) Live crickets
2) Hot cocoa mix
3) A very creepy-looking doll
I assure you, a la Dave Barry, that I am not making this up.
I did enquire this afternoon whether any of the crickets had escaped. Fortunately, the answer to that question was 'no.'
