Hoping not to fall into the toilet

Are you or your kids looking forward to going back to school?

Well, I’m going into middle school and I’m pretty confident about it.

Just last week, I was helping Southwest Elementary School by sitting through a lesson with their candidates for open teaching jobs. While I was there, we read a story about a boy who is going into sixth grade and he is worried about these things:

-being late for school;

-falling in the toilet due to the eighth graders putting butter on the seats;

-no doors on second floor stalls; and

-a lot more homework.

When my mom asked me if I was worried about middle school, I replied: “Sort of, I heard that the eighth graders put butter on the seats so I will fall in.”

“Don’t be silly,” she said, laughing. “The eighth graders aren’t going to butter the seats. Besides, you’re too big to fall through!”

I scowled at that remark.

So I guess I could say that I’m pretty excited about middle school.

(Even if I do fall through the toilet!)
