This afternoon I ran into a fellow long-term sub who started her most recent gig about the same time I did. “I tell you what,” she said under her breath to me, “I’m working a hell of a lot harder than I ever worked when I taught full time with my own classroom.” Being a long-term sub is a lot like cooking in someone else’s kitchen. They haven’t arranged it the way you would so everything takes twice as long to find. And as if that wasn’t enough, they’ve assigned you to make all kinds of dishes for super picky eaters without bothering to leave you any of the recipes.
This sounds like a weird show on cable that might also star people who might vaguely be considered celebrities but it is my current reality and makes for terrible creativity for blogging. Also adventuring.
It DOES, however, mean that I sometimes get catalogues full of things that I can order to dissect, or maybe to eat for lunch. It’s not really specific, but does seem reasonably priced…for either.
