HSO meeting this morning. My first one in my son’s new school.
HSO President: A notice is being sent out to all parents regarding the change in the Book Fair date in November.
Concerned Parent: Can you please send the notice out on pink or green paper?
Now I know I’m stumped by this. The president has a puzzled look on her face too.
HSO President: I supposed we can use a different color paper. Now about the dates…blah, blah, blah. (Ten minutes of blah, blah, blahing.) Any questions from anyone?
Same Concerned Parent: Can we vote on the paper color?
She took a vote on the paper color, I think because she just didn’t want to insult the parent. But, seriously, I ask you, WHO CARES what color paper is used? And why did 26 women need to waste 15 minutes on this? (Green won, if it matters at all.)
I’m all for democracy and for people making a difference in the world, but c’mon, this was insane. G-d Bless America. Land of the free and home of the insane time wasters. Next stop, congress woman.
And to completely change topics, I am the only one who gags at the thought of this new delicacy to grace our fast food chains:
According to Newslite:
A cheeseburger served on Krispy Kreme doughnuts has gone on sale in America, packing a massive 1,500 calories.
The glazed Krispy Kreme beef, bacon and cheese burger has already proved a huge hit at the Big E fair in Massachusetts where 17,000 of them were eaten.
I’ll pass on that artery clogging heart attack, thanks.
