Not so Sick


We are currently on winter break, but I had a few left over posts from the last couple weeks before the break. 

"I need to blow my nose."

Ten Minutes then picked up the box of tissues.

I know, it's that time of the year. I'm dealing with sinus issues and a cough myself. But no, he doesn't get the classroom's full box.

We compromised. Ten Minutes took five tissues.

Later in the period, I noticed movement near Ten Minutes. He and the girl two seats over were throwing tissues at each other.

Naturally.

(He looked miserable. I thought he was actually sick and needed multiple tissues. My mistake.)

  1. I'm surprised there's a box of Kleenex in the classroom. I know at schools my kids have been at in various cities they had to provide their own Kleenex or parents had to at the beginning of each semester bring in a box to share with the class. Figures they would make a game out of it.

    1. I am, thanks. This is why I won't go into the student bathrooms. Thank goodness that the staff are a bit more responsible with our bathrooms.

  3. He probably did need the tissues. But of course there was an opportunity to make trouble and he had to take it.

  4. I certainly hope those ones getting thrown weren't used! Imagine the spread of boogers!

  9. In my once-upon-a-time days of high school, our history teacher sent a girl to the principal's office for taking a tissue out of the box on his desk without asking permission.

  10. I would never waste facial tissues this way. My nose is forever runny. :)

    1. He had to know I wouldn't give him any more, too.
