Neither Sleet Nor Hail Nor Vomit. . . .

by Tina

You know that you have trained your class to ignore distractions well when someone throws up DURING state testing and no one even flinches and continues with their testing!

No lie!

My classroom!


Luckily he missed the book by an inch and hit the trashcan which I had shoved in front of his face when I saw him starting to turn green!

Nurse is right across the hall, off he goes, trashcan and all!

First question the principal asks me at the break is... did anything hit the test book?

Evidently there is some major procedure involving Fort Knox and some security company
trained by the CIA and FBI that needs to be followed when someone barfs on the book!
