Paper Bag Boy

(Pretty sure this dress was less than 3 bucks)
I have to share this story with you. Yesterday was my bday and my students were really sweet and bought me a trough of golden oreos (if you're new to my blog...you'll learn about my relationship with Golden Oreos soon enough). At any rate, I was about to leave for the day and one of my students was running to catch me before I left.

He was drenched in sweat, clutching a wrinkled paper bag. This is how the conversation went...


Kid: (out of breath) Ms. G, I...just..wanted...to...give..you...a...birthday gift.
Me: *looking at the bag suspiciously* Okay, what is it?
Kid: *handing me the crumpled bag* I know Golden Oreos are your favorite but I know that you said you wanted to lose weight...so I bought you a small box of oreos so you won't gain that much.
Me: *about to tear up* AWWWWW!! Thank you!! I am so touched!
Kid: *looking away* Okay...I'm gonna miss my bus.
Me: *clutching the cookies* Run, Charlie, Run!!!*

How sweet was that!
I know what you're thinking.
"Surely, she is going to keep THAT box of cookies as a keepsake."
Baby Crunch! Those cookies are gone! But we are having a cookie party in class with the other bajillion bags of cookies I racked up!

*not the kid's real name*

That is toooooo funny. Po baby running to catch Ms. G!!! That's cool you let them call you that. We didn't have any cool teachers in my high school. Great post and cool dress. Way to go **Charlie**

Loving that dress, hotness! Reminds me of my pink vintage dress with a similar cut. Don't you just love the a-line flowyness of older dresses?
