Silly School

Jesse has been helping out with the art program at the alternative school in Comanche. I could go into my rant here about your tax dollars at work on special schools for kids who don’t want to be there or do what they are suppose to do – where teachers give them simple projects (worksheets) so that they can get them graduated. While at the regular public school students have to work hard, attend class, behave, etc. in order to graduate. Hmm, where is the incentive to do well?

Anyway, Jesse helps with the art program and has been enjoying the students for the most part. Of course the students are a bit in awe of her. My friend Glenna, who teaches the program, says Jes is very focused and great with the kids and should be a teacher. But there is a reason we did not send our kids to public high school. Last night Jesse sat on the couch and told us jokes she had heard from the boys in her class. As she told each joke, she laughed until she had tears in her eyes. Toby and I sat watching her and laughing at her – amazed that she is who she is.

The jokes:
How do you catch a unique rabbit?
Unique up on him.
How do you catch a tame rabbit?
Tame way.
How do you catch a polar bear?
You cut a hole in the ice and put peas around the hole. When the polar bear comes to take a pea, you kick him in the ice hole.

What do you call a fly with no wings?

A walk! BAH HA HA HA HA!

My favorite joke. I will have to use Jesses also, very funny stuff. You know I am easily humored.

Jess IS quite the woman. If I were 40 years younger I'd make a run at the young lady. But then again, Buck V1.0 (the 25 year old version) wouldn't stand a chance at making it past Mom and Dad. And Jess prolly wouldn't have been much impressed, either.

re: Alternative schools. No comment.
