The perpetual curse of a teacher... you have a long week but finally, FINALLY, Friday arrives. You get to school with a bounce in your otherwise tired steps. You have a lovely weekend ahead of you! The kids are fine, the day is chugging along, and that's when you feel it. You feel that burn behind your sinuses, deep in the back of your throat.
And it's then that you already think of the things you need to cancel this weekend because you will surely feel like pond scum.
Thanks my little ones... you who spew your spit and mucus all over me on a daily basis. Thanks a lot.
