20 More Minutes


I'm still in the same ceramics class from last week. At the moment we're told the teacher is only going to be out two more weeks. We're hopeful, but I won't be at all surprised if this assignment gets extended further.

The sub caller laughed about how I'm getting "the weird ones". To be fair, this is only the second "weird one" after the CAD teacher's jury duty kept getting extended in August. (I suppose she meant that usually these longer assignments are more expected, like a teacher is out for a scheduled surgery or maternity leave.)

What I find funny is that I stumbled into this assignment because I wanted 20 more minutes in bed.

That Wednesday I had nothing scheduled. So, I was happy to receive an early morning wake up call. I had a couple choices as to an assignment (which was much better than the day before when there had been nothing).

I had a choice between two sites. I picked the site with the later start time just because if I'd picked the other site, I would have had to get out of bed as soon as I hung up the phone.

So, I stumbled into this assignment out of sheer laziness. It's a strange sort of luck.

  1. But at least you know where you'll be for a bit and you won't have to "worry" about that early morning phone call for a bit either :)

    1. That's generally the goal. Alas, they start high school so freaking early.

  5. I would've gone with the more sleep option too. It's nice that it's worked out to be weird. :)

  9. Be careful for what you ask. lol I got told that a lot. For what? I don't recall. Hope it was good things like 20 minutes extra.

  10. I hope this did not bode badly.

    When I was subbing, I hated the calls at 5:30 am. If 6 am came and no phone call? Did that mean I could sleep late? Noooo. I got calls as late as 7:30 with school starting at 8.

    1. Yup, I'm familiar. I'm usually grateful for later calls as I would be worried of missing a work day. And then I can be late, as they can't expect me to be on time when they call me that late.
