Sooo…there was a contest. The kids had to guess how many star candies were in a big jar. I made a guess myself, I think I guessed 3,367. The prize for guessing closest to the number was throwing a pie at the teacher of your choice. They were only able to do it if the goal for the book fair was met, which it was. I was one of the closest guessers too so I got to throw a pie at a student. One of my former first graders chose me as a pie target. I was the only dual thrower and throwee. That, my friends, is why I had to come home tonight and wash C.ool Wh.ip out of my hair.
It probably says something about my life that this was the second pie I’ve had thrown in my face. The first one was a surprise throw by my stinker brother. I turned around and suddenly couldn’t breath because there was whipped topping up my nose.
