My last pupe of the term gave me a wrapped gift today. When I got home I saw it had written instructions to open it today. So I just have (all be it in fear and trepidation of the Curse of Santa). I am now the proud owner of a set of stickers that say :
"Flutes are shiny, ohhhh shiny"
"I'm an elephant - yay!" (that'll come in handy won't it?)
"Flutes should always be rested on shoulders" (as if little me would criticise a pupe for doing so....
"Scales are rubbish and should never be learned" (this pupe really SHOULD value its spleen more....)
"Rubber chickens are stretchy like pineapples" (well, another jolly useful one there then. This pupe regularly utters the word "pineapple" at random intervals during lessons....)
I really DID laugh when I opened them. I am actually quite touched as these are things we've laughed about in the course of the term and said pupe has had fun doing this for little me.
Faith in the Youth of Today happily restored.
Like a good bra, sis, like a good bra
