Friday Fragments:The Belated Version

I survived my first full week back with students and had grand plans of getting all caught up on the blog over the weekend.  Didn't happen, so here is a belated version of fragments from my week off and beyond! ~ I checked and the linky over at Half Past Kissin Time is still open, so I think I'm safe!

*****

We were at a concert a few weekends ago and I *made* Lawn Boy find a woman who was the same size as me and point her out. Fool that we was, he actually did it, but I think maybe that was because he was shocked at the size of the women to which I was comparing myself.  I was pleasantly surprised! Well, minus the amount of jiggle happening in the rear of the girl ~ yes, girl, maybe he's not THAT foolish~ he picked.  Sugar, you need better panties under that dress! *grins*

*****

My children were home for less than 24 hours and The Girl was already asking when she could have her next sleepover.  I guess she didn't miss her bed THAT much! 

*****

I have a good friend who is a micro-roaster.  I order all of my coffee through him.  My last shipment never showed up, so he kindly mailed me a new box this week. It showed up overnight, but the original shipment is still missing after two weeks!!!  The boxes always emit a heavenly smell, so I am envisioning a member of the USPS sipping a really good cuppa somewhere!

And my favorite comment from last week, as I put on my sunglasses to take my class out to Recess, "Ms. T, do you where you sunglasses alot? Is that why you are all white around your eyes and tan everywhere else?"

I hear ya on the late Friday Fragments!

Glad to hear that your year is off to a good start.

Too funny about the white eyes. Kids say the best things sometimes! What grade are they?

My mom barely let me go to sleepovers and when I did, I had to go to bed at 9.

I'm so glad you were able to get the first week under your belt. My boys started last week, too. You've gotta love the innocence of kids with their comments. lol And kudos to Lawn Boy for the comparison choices! =)

BAhaha! That last fragment is great and so ME.
I thought I was the only weirdo who had people compare my size to other women. LOL
Good thing LB made a good choice! Smart man.

Hey I think it's great that you still did the Friday Fragment thing. I mean you can eat cookies for breakfast why not do the FF post on a different day.
I believe women are much more critical of other women's looks than guys are. This rear end action - like two grizzlies fighting?
