This month Alabama Women Bloggers has challenged its members to write about their blogging journeys.
The first blog I ever started had the Out of the Mouth of Babes in my url. It was a Blogger/Blogspot blog
that now I can’t figure out how to access. I’ve tried all kinds of things to no avail. I hope one day I can figure it out and get my content back. If anyone out there has any helpful hints, please let me know. Persistence paid off – I’m in!!!
Anyway, I started that blog when I was still teaching fulltime, using funny stuff culled from my students and some of my own poetry and personal essays. Now I’m a substitute teacher and I still find lots of gems in the classroom. I have two current blogs – this one which is B’ham focused, and another, Not In This Soup Alone, which is more personal.
Being in the classroom, especially as a substitute teacher, can be a real source of entertainment. Such as when students have to write sentences using their vocabulary words. In the spring I had fun reading some of the sentences created for the words floundered, laden, and remote. Laugh along with me…
The remote school is in the middle of the road.
I picture a one-room schoolhouse plopped down in the middle of a road in the middle of nowhere.
The woman floundered after getting tazed.
I believe I would flounder a bit if I was tazed, wouldn’t you?
The camel was floundered.
I wonder if the camel was also tazed? I think perhaps he was laden down with something illegal and thus he was tazed and floundered.
This is a laden place.
This was a dark coffeehouse full of beatniks quoting heavy poetry.
I’m sure when school resumes in August I’ll have more to share, so stay tuned. 🙂
