I'm Sure The Alternative Would Be Against The Law

What some of you may not realize is that Mrs. Hillbilly Mom has only 164 short work days left until her retirement. OR DOES SHE?

Today I removed from EmBee's lock-jawed mouth a postcard. Not a postcard of greeting from, perhaps, my FBF Mabel. No sirree, Bob! It was a postcard from the county circuit clerk. We are not FBFs. We are not even BFFs. We would not know each other if one of us bit the other on the butt. Either end, the giving or the receiving, of which would be equally unpleasant. Nope. It was not a friendly greeting. It was a command.

Mrs. Hillbilly Mom is to report for duty September 8th, 9th, and 10th!

Let the record show that Mrs. HM's duty is not to act as a judge, nor an executioner. Yep. They wasted no time in glomming onto fair and impartial Mrs. Hillbilly Mom for their pool of jurors. The ink is barely dry on the questionnaire she returned.

This might be a bit of a sticky wicket. Newmentia, as well as Basementia and Elementia, frown upon one who is not at work the day after a holiday. What with Labor Day being September 7th, and Mrs. HM asking off for the three days following...the Semi-Weekly Meeting of the Newmentia Lunch Time Think Tank may be fraught with accusations in her absence.

Oh, well. Enviers gonna envy.

To be fair, I think you should make up those 3 days. You could do that by teaching the first 3 days of the 2016-2017 school year.

Or better yet (AKA worse yet), you should be required to spend 3 days watching the inservice videos.

It's only fair...

To be fair, a fair is a celebration held within a county, where one may enjoy funnel cake, corn dogs, those potato chip piles, cotton candy, carousels, Tilt-A-Whirls, Ferris wheels, scramblers, dart-throwing, ring-tossing, prize pigs, champion steers, and seeing if you're a strong man by pounding a plate with a big hammer to ring a bell.

The 2016-17 school year, Madam, is off the table. And the videos are already burned into my memory.

Carry on. With your career. After May 2016.

I shall be busy in my newfound freedom, counting up the money from my sick day buyback, and my jury duty pay.
