Things that make me happy

Here I will share things with you that just make me so happy.

Pretty things.

Thoughtful things.

Goofy things (gotta have goofy things).

A 6th grader was booted from class and sent to the main office the other day.  I know I probably should not talk to kids who have been naughty, but this fella had a Pokemon t-shirt on, so protocol went out the window.  Our conversation went something like this:

Me:  So, what are you in for?

Him:  I “disrupted the class”

Me:  Well, did you?

Him:  Yes, but there is so much drama in my class, and I hate drama!

Me:  I do too!  I like your shirt though.  Who is your favorite Pokemon, and did you catch ’em all?

Him:  Vulpix

Me:  Mine is Hitmonchan

Not too long after that, a Vulpix stuffy made its way into my cart at Amazon.  Curious, right?

Then, not too long after that, this made its way on to my desk:

Poke ball!

Now we give each other a high five when we pass in the hall.

My Secret Santa gave me this wind-up waddling Ziggy.  I played with him all day at work. The kids at the school got such a kick!
