Me: “Studying for your finals on Wednesday and Thursday?”
Sarah: “I have tests EVERY day this week!”
as she said it, flames shot out of her eyes and my face melted off. I skulked off to lick my wounds.
A few hours later, Sarah emerged from her room with a very wet painting. “I wasn’t happy with the painting I was working on, so I changed it. The “change” was taking a peaceful, pastel colored painting and covering it with a thick finger-painting of what can only be described as Cookie Monster with rabies. I didn’t know that Cookie Monster has giant fangs. He looked like he wanted a lot more than cookies.
I think we’ll spend the rest of this week sliding cookies under Sarah’s door and protecting the younger children from the wrath of finals week.
