The Blackboard Jungle

days spent beating back the seeds of doubt

Monday, October 04, 2004

I know it's an annoying presumption that whenever I want some kids to do a collage or a poster, I send one victim trotting off to Art Teacher Joe to bring back thirty pairs of scissors. I'd not be surprised if said kid came trotting back, purple -faced and indignant with the message 'get your own damn scissors'.
But to be honest, when Kieran comes back saying 'Art Teacher Mister Joe says you owe him a big wet kiss for these', I'm somewhat shocked.

That'll put a stop to the borrowing, eh?
