hum, interesting list. Not sure if I want to be an art teacher and be “quirkily unstable” or the science teacher and have access to large amounts of dangerous chemicals. Such fun choices.
Yeah, ready access to dangerous chemicals… Sounds like a dream, right?
Yes, my dream job right there.
My wife plays this game every year but she has slightly different pieces. They include Phys Ed. teacher, Counsellor and Librarian.
Haha! Yeah, seeing a PE teacher face off with a Librarian would make an interesting battle. 😀
I believe it actually happened during the epic semester of ’98 — anyway, that’s the rumour.
Very cute. I think I’d be the World Language Teacher but, as one of my assumed default characteristics, I would be opposed to competitions and could not participate, thereby losing before I started. Hmm. Maybe I’d best review the list again…
Ah, yes. It’s that whole “my strengths are my weaknesses” conundrum. Gets ya every time. 😉
[…] or maybe you haven’t seen it yet, the proud mother in me wants you to check it out again: Click Here. Reason being, Daughter provided some illustrations for it and they only got uploaded Thursday […]
Love these and the illustrations by someone’s very talented daughter!
Thanks! She does pretty well, though she’s the last one to believe it. (I’ve no idea where she gets that from!)
time to turn the illustrations into Greeting Cards
