Sometimes You Just Have To Laugh

The middle school where I work sells carnations all week long the week before Valentine's Day. The deal is that, for $1.50, you can have a flower delivered on February 14 to a classmate. It can be done anonymously, or not--your choice.

This little fundraiser raises more than money--it raises expectations!

Who gets a flower? Who gets a bunch of flowers? Who got a bear added to the flowers? (That happens when someone drops off a gift in the office & asks that it be delivered last period.)

Today students were just crazy! The love was everywhere--EVERYWHERE, I tell you! By 8th period, well--it was interesting, to say the least.

Then, just as with every high point, comes the crash & burn part. Some folks didn't get flowers! Hearts were visibly broken--boys as well as girls. I went through more than just a few tissues in my classroom after school.

Poor little things--eleven is too early to be starting this.

Should I tell them it never gets any better?
