Ever think about what you would do if you weren't a teacher?
I have... I had a rough year a few years ago and seriously considered making some changes in my life....
Boy, I am glad I stuck it out!
But if I ever did have to find a new job, I would become a lawyer- and not just any lawyer...
but a lawyer to our Antarctic friends.
Yes , that's right...
I would make myself a little suitcase out of snow, strap tennis rackets to my shoes (like you do) and trek out to find work.
If you are caught up in the Frozen Planet series that is out right now (love me some nature shows) then you might have a slight idea of what I am talking about.
I really don't think it would be hard to find someone to represent.
(You have to look at this from the perspective of a grown up who spends her days talking about books with animals that are living in houses, wearing clothes, and talking!)
First off, it is probably a very litigious bunch of characters anyway- they are all pis**ed off and grumpy because no one, and I mean NO ONE on their CONTINENT has opposable thumbs!!!
More than half of them don't have ANY appendages that do anything other than swim!
Think of all the times SOMEBODY slips and falls with all that ice!!!
And I just have to say- sexual harrasment suits would be threw the roof (well there are no dwellings, but you know what I mean)
Come on, seriously- none of those girls (seals, bears, walruses, penguins) look as if they are welcoming OR enjoying ANY of these dudes advances!!! Nothing Sexy about that!
You don't even get to talk about it- it just happens....I mean really, Polar Bear- no means no!
Seriously though- these series are awesome! My dad was(still is) a Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom with Marlin Perkins and Marty Stouffer (spelled that wrong) kind of guy.
So I have always loved any kind of nature show.
I just wish that every once in awhile, the seal got away. Can't killer whales and polar bears eat ugly animals...like those huge sea lions with the Squidward noses??????
Only three more days until spring break!
I can't wait- can you tell my brain needs a break???
