Which is worse? As I was trying to pour some clogged paint, I squeezed too hard and it splattered ALL OVER a poor and unsuspecting second grader. We’re talking hair, face, clothes, arms - covered! She just sat there in stunned silence. 


When the teacher came to pick them up I announced that she should ask them the ‘S’ word that I taught them (Yes, there were chuckles). Um, I meant SYMMETRY!

I laughed pretty hard at myself today!


  1. Oh my gosh!! I thought it was pretty bad yesterday when I went to shake a quart container of yellow tempera and it sprayed all over me, the wall and the floor. At least the room was empty and I only ended up messing myself up!! I can only imagine your horror as the paint headed toward your little second grader. I hope she (and her mom) had a good sense of humor!!!

    1. Haha, they took it well. And, as I type this, I'm staring at the yellow streak of paint on my pant leg!
