two days

just two more days of this nonsense.

on a side note, there is an unwritten rule about teachers telling students about who they will be voting for. i suppose that many parents would be upset at the idea that teachers are indoctrinating young minds with liberal ideas.

in my one and only class, i have juniors and seniors. and last week, they asked me, point blank, who are you going to be voting for, Mr. Colianni?

let’s back up a second and look at a couple of things. I have an Obama sticker on my car. I have another in the window of my office. they already know who I’ll be voting for.

and yet they’ve asked. and so after some “ahhs” and “umms”, I stated that I’ll be voting for Obama.

bad move. a ruckus erupts. moving. towards. chaos.

seizing the opportunity, they turned to the other teacher in the room, whose room I share. “who are you going to be voting for?”

“last time I checked, it was a secret ballot”, he replied with a smile.

i have so much to learn.
