Tales out of School

A kindergartner comes into the health office. He's bumped his head, is perfectly fine, but needs some ice. He gets his ice and sits down. All the while he is staring intently at Nurse N.. Finally he speaks to her: 
Buddy:  "Are you scary?"
Nurse N.:  "I don't think you think I am?"
Buddy:  "Yeah, I think maybe you are." 
Nurse N.:  "Well, what could I do not to be scary?"
A long pause, then finally Buddy says:
"You need to chew bubblegum, yeah bubblegum, 
then you wouldn't be so scary."

Nurse N. has been chewing copious 
amounts of bubblegum ever since.

expect anything!

I'm still without internet at home, and didn't have time to go "borrow" Miss MPM or jules' wireless, thus no photo today. This could be a good or bad thing, depending on your point of view. I'll be back! But photos may not occur till Saturday. 
Try not to be too disappointed! 


  1. I think it's a good thing. I am tired of those morning glory shots. How was your dinner? pftftftft

  2. Bad thing! We love your photos :-) Shame on you, MPM! Funny story about the nurse and boy.

  3. Bad thing. MPM is obviously jealous. She is very funny, however.

    Methinks I could tell some terribly funny Tales out of School, too! Do you teach, Annie?

  4. Thanks for shelling out smiles (the bead sheet story was great, too!).
    Cheers, Klaus

  5. ...Yeah(*sigh*), I was gettin' kinda tired of all those beautiful photos of the flowers and the trees and that awesome farm your parents live does get rather tiresome(*yawn*)...>>snicker<<*giggle* ;o)

    ...Funny how you and Kate both have cute lil' children's stories to share with us - did you two collaborate on this before you posted? :o)


  6. outta the mouths of babes!

    I miss your photos... but I gues sI can scroll back and entertain myself until the problem is fixed!

    Hugs Laura

  7. May you get interenet soon--sooner than you expect. How miserable!

  8. UGH .. sorry to hear that the lack of connectivity persists ...


  9. interesting bubble gum tale. :)

  10. I miss your photos!!

  11. Kate - Not a teacher - I work in a school health office. Needless to say, the story fodder is rich!

  12. Nurse N is such a hoot. That's why we hit it off almost 21 years ago when we first met.

  13. I'm sorry you're without internet, I would be lost. Hope you get it back soon!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a thought. It's appreciated! xoabb
