We are having our version of weather over here in Hawaii. It is 62 degrees out.
Last week I had to walk from my classroom to the office during recess. I try not to do this. I usually walk to the office during my prep period or late after school when there are not a lot of students around. The buzz created when over 2,500 teenagers converge in the middle of campus for a fifteen minute break is like being submerged in a YouTube fuck me video. I rarely stop or admonish language use outside my classroom. I’d never get to the office to sign in. But here’s a sample of last Thursday’s recess, what with the temperature in the 60’s and a bit of a wind.
It’s fucking cold.
Fuck, it’s cold.
I wish I wore a fucking jacket. It’s fucking cold.
FUUUUUCK! It’s fucking cold.
That was pretty much repeated all the way to the office and back. However, as I approached my building, the recess bell rang and the throngs of teens started moving towards the buildings. As I walked through the doors, the girl two inches behind me said,
This fucking wind turned my hair into a mother fucking cunt.
Before thinking I turned around to see the young lady who had a more creative take on the cursing. When she realized a teacher was smack dap in front of her she blanched and apologized.
Sorry miss, I didn’t see you there.
I wonder what language these kids would come up with if they were shipped to one of the many parts of the country that is really having some weather...
On a side note, over my winter break I was able to spend more time with my still somewhat new blogging hobby. I was able to visit sites more regularly and read some new blogs as well. Check these bloggers out, if you haven't already.
Beth is an elementary school principal with some great stories from behind the scenes.
Mile 17 is a writer and a mother who I always feel a connection with when I visit.
Irish Gumbo is an inspiring and prolific writer who has come into the blogging scene in a big way.

Suburb Sanity cracks me up every time I visit.
Mama Dawg has an amazng eight year old daughter, LOML, who is beading some beautiful earrings and has them for sale.
Now I need to go find a fucking jacket so I can walk my dogs in the frigid 62 degree weather.
Maybe a hair tie too so my hair doesn’t turn into a mother fucking cunt.
