ZIPpity Do Dah!!!

He was in the lil bag o goodies that the MR recd for his bday.
Zippity Do Dah?!?!

"Wow, Miss Squirrels must have had a wonderful day! Especially if she is titling a post "ZIPpity Do Dah!"

Today was average.

Nothing major happened.

Nothing exciting.

No one said anything particularly funny.

There weren't any situations that were uniquely comedic.

So I am going to tell you what Chickadee told me last week....it's juicy.

She came home and told me that the SRO searched backpacks.

{Oh, no. We are going to have to have the very serious drug talk. I DON'T WANNA!!!}

How dare someone have DRUGS around my baby girl!

She quickly calmed me and reassured me that no one had drugs (that they found) on them.

Well then what were they looking for?

{Oh no! Weapons! We are going to have to talk about weapons and how violence is not the answer. I DON'T WANNA!!!}

She quickly calmed me and reassured me that no one had weapons (that they found) on them.
(Good thing you can't put S.E.X. in a backpack, eh?- whew!)



WELL THEN WHAT WERE THEY LOOKING FOR???

Zip ties.

Yep, not a typo.

Zip ties.

A grown man in a law enforcement uniform was going bag to bag looking for zip ties.

These
Why?

And this is where I stop for a moment to be very serious- I in no way condone the act of bullying or any type of hazing or prank at the expense of  an adolescent teen.

Ok, with that being said...are you dying to know why zip ties are attracting so much attn from the Sherriff's Dept?

Because students are putting zip ties through other student's belt loops and zip tying them to their chairs!
They are zip tying lockers shut (and you know how hard it is to wedge a pair of scissors into a zip tie that has been pulled tight).
They are zip tying backpacks closed.

Anything that can be tied, is being tied.

Some little weasels entrepreneurs are selling them for 50 cents a piece!!!!

I hope my boys don't grow up to be zip tie users....or worse A ZIP TIE DEALER!!!!!

In my head I picture a skit on a Disney show where a wizard or a pop star or the token misfit is stuck to his chair...and I giggle.

You can currently receive ISS just for having them in your possession- get caught in a prank with them and you can get suspended.

Can you imagine retelling that story "Yeah, I had zip ties in my backpack so I couldn't walk the line at graduation."

Insane!
I hope they are able to rid the halls of this extremely dangerous fastener....I can only hope that Velcro never makes it out on the street!

Guess what came in the mail today!!??

 I made all three Littles play with me!!
Really, I had to make them.
 You have to spin a spinner and use the "Squirrel Squeezer" to pick up the matching acorn and place in on your log.

 He's so cute!!!


 Look at  how he holds the acorn!


 Careful, Squirrel! Don't drop it!
I look forward to playing it with some of my firsties at inside recess (and it is raining right now, so that means TOMORROW!!!)

Whoo hoo!!!

  4. I just discovered the best idea for keeping desks from becoming all willy nilly in the classroom. It involves zip ties. Do you think its still legal? And that game is adorable. I may have to buy it, even though my name sounds nothing like squirrels. If you have a chance, come check out my blog. I am having a giveaway:>!
