what is it...

...about teachers and mugs???
this is such an odd practice in our society.
i simply just do not understand...
WHY DO WE GIVE TEACHERS MUGS??
remember last year when I was gifted this mug at the beginning of my student teaching?
well, at my official District orientation this week, what was the first gift to be handed out?
you guessed it... this fine piece of pottery.
thank you Granite School District,
for your kind donation to the already overflowing shelf that is set aside especially for
lonely, dusty, unwanted mugs.

maybe i'll remember you in December
during cocoa season.

i don't know about you, but i like to drink my cocoa out of cute mugs. you know the kinds that are colorful with stripes or polka dots. or holiday themed ones, where one of the antler's to the reindeer is your handle? you know the kind. if i had that mug it would for sure be a lonely little guy...haha!

haha, that is too funny! i kind of feel the same way about company t-shirts. why on earth do people make things like that with awful logos. they must know that they hang around for a few years, then inevitably end up at the DI. at least i can use my bad company t-shirts for painting.
