Happy New Year!
Ahhh, the first post of a new year.
The first post of a year really should set the tone for where you plan on going, don’t you think? Give people a heads up on what to expect?
So, I have an idea for my fellow player-parents in the audience. Those with children in the 5 to 7 year range.
You know how you’ll get, over the course of the school year, invites to birthday parties from the parents of one of the other kids in class?
There you all are, a room or a field somewhere, kids all running around screaming, playing games, having fun.
And most of the parents stay to supervise their kids, and stand around chatting and drinking coffee or whatever.
Sure, you lose some of the parents, as they are just too important to spend an entire 2 hours near their kids. They’ve just GOT to drop the kids off and hightail it somewhere else.
But most of you are there… bored… letting the kids have fun. No teacher in sight.
The parents of the entire class, for the most part, gathered together without supervision from school authorities.
So here’s what you do.
You propose that you and your fellow parents have a “Sabotage the Teacher” day at school.
What you do is, you make sure all the parents have Pixie Sticks, and hand out two of them to their kids to chug down, RIGHT before dropping them off at the classroom door.
Then, you RUN.
An entire classroom of kids dropped in their unsuspecting teacher’s lap, with the sugar time bomb ticking quickly away.
Ferrats on sugar shock highs are NOTHING compared to that.
Think of this as your little way of getting your own back against the school bastards that send home crap you are ordered to sell to all your co-workers and family members, in order to extort money out of you on a personal basis. And who make sure that your own children are indoctrinated that if you DON’T sell enough, you and your family are LOSERS.
Happy New Year, my subversive brothers and sisters. :)
