Is that a Ruler in Your Pocket or Are You Just Happy to See Me?
Tuesday, November 21, 2006

I think Ms. First Year Teacher has a case of KaraMia-itis. Yes, yes I do.

Kendell's conference is tonight. At our open house at the beginning of the school year we were invited to sign up for tonight.

What?
Two months in advance you ask?
Yes...Two.Months.

That should have been the first sign of a problem, yet I remained blissfully unaware.

Then there was the note home. "Sign and confirm you'll be there", it requests of me.
I do.

A few days later I get an email. "Ms. Kendell's Mother, will you be there?" it asks imploringly.

"With bells on" was my reply.

Another little note found it's way into my short man's back pack. "Please confirm" it pleaded with me.

I spurned it with my lack of response.

Then the emails started, cryptic little messages of inquiry, followed shortly by messages passed to me from my son, the unknowing pawn in this crazy little interlude.

Soon I got a phone call, "will you be there?" she asks sweetly.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! "Of course" I reply, "It's on my calendar." Her sigh is resplendent with relief at my answer.

I go tonight....and I'm telling you, if there's a bunny boiling on the break room stove, I'm so outta there!

I would have stopped replying to her after the second time I confirmed I would be there. And then, at the conference, I would have had to discuss HER behavior with her. Ugh.
