Lipstick In School  
According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem.

A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick, they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them, and the next day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

There are teachers ... and then there are educators.

He can't stop eating and begging for food. :)

Our gardener - oh wait - I'm our gardener! I never find it cute either but it keeps him busy while I plant things. Getting it in the dirt is half the battle.

He is cute though - you can't stay mad at the scamp.

Hee. =)

Yes, you're right about that. It is difficult to keep up with your scolding when they turn those liquid eyes of cute on you. :P

Are you on Twitter?

No, sadly. I find that being on two social networking sites at a time is hard enough for me. :P Why?

Cause I have a Twitter account. I find it easier to post a short sentence than a long post these days.

Ah. Sorry, though, I don't have one, and I doubt I'll be getting one anytime soon. :/
