Did you know…

10 Jan

Did you know that beetles (the bug not the band) can bury under your skin and make your skin not alive?  True story.  At least if you believe my first graders… BUT!

This one time, at band camp (insert band camp joke here), a girl did get one of those fuzzy caterpillars under her skin.

No, really, she did.  Here’s the scene…

We were all sitting outside for lunch.  The best seats were by the lake under the trees.  This girl, let’s call her Beth, was sitting at the picnic tables under the trees. Everything was fine, lunch was being eaten until there was a big commotion and screaming.  There were fuzzy caterpillars in the trees, we knew that, we had seen them.  Well, apparently Beth had not seen them or thought anything of them because she let one crawl on her.  The next thing you know, the caterpillar and burrowed under her skin!  Gross!  The EMS had to be called and she had to be taken to the hospital to get it taken out.  It was a very traumatic event because no one wanted to sit on the picnic tables…well at least for one day.

You can thank Leanne for the story, she reminded me!

So maybe this is what my first grade student was thinking of when he said that…

I do believe this was on senior night.  We. Were. Cool.  Please note the fancy corsage.
