It’s six weeks to the end of the school year. Hooyah! With summer dangling its promises before our tired souls, here is our list of likes/dislikeds.

KEEP!

  1. Horror movies:  we love being scared, and we love being safe. While it’s not really the same in real life, the movies take us on a roller coaster ride of heart-thumping terror and soft-rain relieve.
  2. Gamers’ Revolution:  From what we heard…. Gamers are up in arms because of people’s failure to recognize that gaming is a…well, not a sport…but it’s not true entertainment either, and it’s not addiction….Maybe more like a live action debate? Anyway…give them some respect.
  3. Mr. Cooper, the science teacher: He set the gold standard for pranks. He’s always pulling pranks, but this one…well…it was precious.  What do you get when you turn the classroom into a barn? Well, if you add a baby lamb (with its own Pamper) on skinny legs, a fat, wide-awake bunny, and six or seven tiny dinosaurs (chickens with beaks which were meant to tear apart something), you get “Awwwnnnn!” and a smile from everyone who walks in and out of the room. Mr. Cooper’s response to a remark about the smiles:  “That’s why I did it.”
  4. Honor Roll activities:  Please, Sah, some more?

KICK!

  1. 4×4 Rubik’s cubes. Would someone please show Ethan the cheat sheet? It’s drivin’ him crazy!
  2. Rebooted TV serious shows. Okay: we’re glad to know the children turned out well in spite of and because of their parents, and that the parents are still married, and if not, still friend. No one is in prison; no one is selling drugs on the street. But after those systems’ checks, are these shows relying upon the same formulas of comedy?
  3. Syrian crisis. It’s not the Syrian families we are yellin’ about: it’s the fact that a government could not resolve its issues wisely, that it didn’t weigh in the balance the human cost of their decisions. But then, government isn’t always in touch with its people, either.
  4. People trashing schools. We’re talking about our school. Look, the maid quit yesterday, couldn’t handle it, and so now we are on our own. Pick it up, Bub. Don’t leave it behind, and don’t throw it.
  5. Mondays….
