That was Elton John’s, “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting.” What? You didn’t get that!? It’s finally Saturday and I am very happy. Even though we had a four-day week, I swear it seemed like it was six! It was just a weird work week altogether. I was hardly in the classroom it felt like…blah.
In first grade a little girl, let’s call her Misty, farted while sitting on the carpet. No one really said anything, but the two little boys next to her were making faces like they were going to gag and die. Misty, of course, called herself out by saying, “I said excuse me!” The teacher let it go and then one on the little boys said, “Misty farted!” In a way that only a first grader can. Misty countered with, “I said excuse me!” The teacher had to explain that everybody farts and just to let it go. And everyone pretty much did, except Misty. She had to ask a teacher, “Do you ever fart…?” Good times.
Another good story out of first grade…this one comes from the teacher assistant in the classroom. A little boy went into the bathroom, before going in the T.A. told him to take off his gloves, he apparently didn’t hear her. He went into the bathroom, flushed the toliet, all with gloves on. Then, came out, took off his gloves and washed his hands. Seems appropriate, right?
Is it always better to know the truth, even when it hurts? Or is ignorance bliss? Or are they both true some of the time?
I think, and this is just me, that both are true some of the time. Yes, it’s better to know the truth, even when it hurts. If it is something that is going to significantly going to impact your life and no one is telling you about it… You need to know. But, ignorance is also bliss. Like going the Five Guys Burgers and Fries and eating a little cheeseburger with french fries and not knowing how many calories are in each. That is bliss!
There was also a follow-up double twist to take a picture of something you know to be the truth. Well, something I know to be the truth is that Leanne and I are always in the last corral (Whoa!) when in a race.
Yeah, we’re always in the back, but it works for us! More people for us to pass and beat!
What do you think? Is it better to know the truth or is ignorance bliss?
