The Day of The Awesome

Here are some things some of my students said today:

Me: Your haircut looks nice, J.
J: Thanks, Reem. Thanks for not giving me a hard time about it.
Me: I would never give you a hard time about anything, J. And I really do like your haircut.
J: Well, sometimes haircuts are embarrassing. Like when that stupid lady cuts it too short.


A: I hate oatmeal. Oats shouldn't go in food, oats should go in horses.


Me: How was your day, T?
T: I never said it was good.
Me: How is this song going, T?
T: I never said it was going good.
(more later)
T: I'm not stupid like I used to be, you know.


Also, there was this woman who had twins with her, maybe about 14 months old, both of whom had giant puffy heads of hair. They toddled around, waddling, kind of like somebody who's new to walking. Arms straight out. little know? Anyhow, they both had pacifiers in their mouths, and as they were walking around aimlessly, they both started crying. Both pacifiers fell out of their mouths at the same time, and they kept walking around in circles, bumping into things, and crying. I don't know why, but it was the funniest thing ever at that moment. I started laughing so hard that I had to close the door to my studio. Laughing at crying babies! What's my problem?


Other things about today...

I had a snack of apple slices and crackers and shared them with my last 6 students. We all kept calling it "Snack Day." Those kids love the apples.

My boss asked me to "approve something" when I had a break. It turned out she wanted me to see the new giant posters we're going to hang in the studios. She needed my opinion on whether we should have a poster of a piano only, or a person playing a piano. I approved of "whatever...I don't really care."

One of my students said that she felt like we were friends. But also a teacher and student

I got free coffee, and they got the good creamer again.

In conclusion, I love working at an art center. My job rules.

I love that the twin babies were doing everything at the same time. I hope they were wearing the same outfit too.

Oats should go in horses is genius.

They totally were. Matching short overalls. Red and white striped on one, green and white striped on the other. Perfect.
