You learn something new every day

Sometimes it's a good thing.

Sometimes it's a bad thing.

Today, there were a lot of bad things. But there was one pretty funny thing. Did you know that it's possible to burn something inside a crock pot? I had no idea. But I totally did it. I put three chicken breasts in to cook this morning...and I put them on high! I have no idea why I did that. But they were dried out and stuck to the bottom of the crock. Is that called a crock? That sounds bad...like, what a crock! Crock on! Crock out!

And that's why my students look at me funny and shake their heads on a daily basis. They have no idea what to do with such a quirky teacher.

Wait till I tell them to Crock On! tomorrow :)

EDITED TO ADD: I totally told my fifth period class to crock on. They told me I was a dork. Third period informed me that I burned my chicken to the pot, not the crock. Who knew? I was able to turn the whole story into a teaching moment--I retold them the story using all ten of their vocabulary words as a review before they took their quiz :)

I laughed and covered my face for you when I read this. I do love you very much, though.

??? Did you know that when you put eggs on stove and forget them eventually they will explode in to minute particules!
