Fun in Sun With Mrs. Po
5/23/11 – Mrs. Po grow old gracefully too. Today at elementary school, they schedule “Fun in Sun” and Mrs. Po wear white Capri pants. (This important in story). Mrs. Po only two weeks from retirement. She asked by guidance counselor honorable Tess Crawford to start “tug of war” with grade six students. Mrs. Po not used to quickness and strength of sixth graders because she spend career with K-g kids. (K-g is code for kids that still poop and pee pants and vomit on rug in classroom, but she love her job)
She place foot on middle of rope, to show kids when to start tugging – then blow whistle before she can move foot off rope. Grade 6 kids very quick, strong and eager to win. She end up backwards, “head over heels” on bum with white pants now stained. Whistle fall out of mouth, so she cannot stop event. (many years ago, coach Bill Reed have similar incident when foot get caught under football sled in practice and when whistle fall out of mouth, sled keep getting pushed up coach Reed’s leg)
Unlike coach Reed, Mrs. Po not swear and cuss.
Kids keep on pulling and Mrs. Po drag herself out of way to avoid injury, and get more grass stains on pants. Kids not know to stop and see if Mrs. Po is hurt or not. Faculty laughing too hard to stop event too. Parents and volunteers also laughing very hard. Other teachers forget they have whistles too.
When event finally over, Mrs. Po’s K-G kids rush over. They not check to see if she okay. They tell her she should wear brown or black pants and asked if stains will come out of fabric. K-G kids are very concerned about things like that.
Unlike Master Po, Mrs. Po make mistake and tell husband about event. So, he must put it on site and facebook too, in retaliation. As always, when you see Mrs. Po – please give her hug.
More good news. No kids poop pants today during fun in sun or vomit on rope.
