I laugh at myself a lot because I'm so reediculously human it makes me crazy. What a challenge just to get past/over my own self.
I love/laugh at children. I am not at all cynical, but hopeful. I used to be very cynical though. But I've found recently that cynicism and sarcasm get on my nerves more than anything. And since I can be sarcastic every once in a while, I sometimes get on my own nerves
Sarcasm is just flat out passive aggressive in my book, it's someone trying to be honest without actually being honest.
An example of something I found really funny. I was eating lunch in my classroom with half of my kids (my teacher had the other half in the cafeteria) and i had a bathroom emergency so I HAD to go. I used to classroom bathroom and told the kids I'd be right out. Our littlest pre-k, elizabeth, who's a little whip walked right up to me and said, "Ms. Bethanie, how are you going to fit your big butt on our little toilet?" OMG, I nearly died. My butt isn't that big, but the toilet IS tiny.
Also....once our classroom had a case of head lice, and everyone had to have their heads checked every week...this little girl in our class was talking to a friend about this, when her friend asked what the nurse was doing, she said, "She's checking for headlights."
Ya know...working with kids is just natural comedy to me, which is probably why I do it.
