At school today...

Open evening for prospective A level students and parents 6 till 8 pm.

Classroom all set up looking very what splendid.

Enticing parents and students to come visit our classroom with offer of free food.

Table of healthy dips and carrot sticks and 2 platters of grapes and strawberries.

5 teachers and a graduate trainee being very earnest, sensible, polite and charming as is our want

End of evening, packing up and leaving, Mr W gets to take all the leftover carrot sticks home and he very innocently says

"I'll need to buy a rabbit"

Your auntie says "Don't think it'll be much use to you"

Before collapsing on the floor, tears blinding me

Nothing like laughing at your own jokes, I'm still laughing now.

Sad article that I am.

Yes, I know I'm supposed to be setting a good example.

Ya dirty wee bisim! Away and wash yer mouth out with soap and say three hail mary's for thinking dirty thoughts! That was brilliant! Sure you are allowed to laugh at your own jokes - great fun and if anyone else wants to join in then that's a bonus!

I read this the other night and didn't get it. About three hours later, when I couldn't sleep, I suddenly got it and had a fit of the giggles myself. You keep laughing Auntie Gwen!

penelope - indeed !

eddie - always glad to have my horizons broadened, many thanks !

amanda - I just like to be a wee bit less middleagedmummyish than I am !

laura - he's quite scared of me already, he told me the other day that when he says things I look at him, wait a bit and then say OK quite slowly, I knew I did that with my kids and students but it's worrying I do it to staff too

lisa - you know we have to brighten up the staffroom any way we can

foxy - I still think it's funny, one of my worst points is thinking I'm hilarious

that girl - not for a while, his wee face was all crumpled and confused, I expected his mammy to come in and complain !

Tim - if you don't know, you don't need to, I'm now terrified your mate the Vicar will pop in on one of his help the heathen rounds

MOb - no Hail Holy Queen ? I got off lightly there ! my mammy actually did wash my mouth out with soap once, she would be mortified to read this !

wm - tell me it's like that at your school too, please, make me feel better !

sue - I'm such a sad article, I know, I don't get out much, you see
