Oh Friday, it took you so long to get here!

After school I went to pick up my packet for the Heart of Ghent 10K tomorrow.  I love how a 20 min journey in Hampton Roads takes 45…so stupid.  Packet pick up was painless and I’m excited for tomorrow!  Of course they were giving away reusable bags as part of the swag and it didn’t take Bond 10 minutes before he jumped inside.  Oh cats…

School Quotes

I know I’ve been calling this school news, but it’s not really news so there. 

The kids were playing a polygon game during math.  In this game they draw two cards, one which has the properties of a polygon, the other which is a shape.  They have to  have both cards match in order to keep the pair. 

One particular girl drew the WILD card and an octagon.  When you get the WILD card you can name the properties of the polygon you have. She started off with, “It has 8 sides and 8 vertices…”  Then she said it was a hexagon.  I asked her partner to help her out.  This is what happened:

Partner: Your polygon starts with “o”

Octagon Girl: Optogon?

Close, so I asked her partner to go on..

P: Think of an animal that lives in the water

OG: A bunny?

At this moment both her partner and I had a giggling fit.  The partner’s a little louder than my own.  I am somewhat professional after all.  I asked her partner to repeat her question saying I thought OG didn’t hear her.

P: It’s an animal that lives in the water

OG: A polar bear?

Closer but still no…

P: This animal has eight legs

OG: Oh an octopus!  So it’s an octagon!

Yikes!  It took a lot not just to giggle right along with her partner.  Really.

Happy you are finally here Friday!  I’ll report on the race tomorrow!
