Tonight is open house at school. So naturally, we ran around like crazy people today forcing kids to finish projects and hang stuff up and cursed the laminator for breaking.
As the minutes ticked by I was left with one final task: using a GIANT stapler to staple together our first class book.
First, I stapled the book to the stapler. Yes. You read that correctly. Then I had to fashion some scissors into pliers to pull the industrial sized staples out of the stapler of death.
I fixed the stapler and stapled the book all without making my accident prone self bleed. This was by far my greatest success of the day.
I mean I did other things too...like teach kids stuff and read Mulan to an 8 year old and took a kid with mosquito bites to the nurse and yelled at kids for running and made kids correct math homework. But really, defeating the stapler of death took first place.
What did you do at work today?
