Ugh! I can’t even believe what I’m going to post. They’re back…one louse and one cockroach! Seriously?
As I was tactfully deciding how to get the cockroach out of the backpack closet, another teacher was adhering tape around a fragile louse in order to show the school nurse her “new student”.
Let’s talk about the cockroach for a minute. The little guy crawled out for a short peak and the other teacher in the room saw him wave hello. Since she helped save the day the last time, she helped me stare at the closet for sometime until I announced that we devise a plan. We waited until it crawled out of someone’s backpack. I jumped toward the closet and knocked it to the floor. That’s when I began stepping all over the backpack. Luckily, the student wasn’t in the room because he might have been upset watching his teacher dance all over his backpack. Ironically, my blog came to mind and the idea of being brave was a fleeting thought…I was seeking annihilation. Another ironic moment was when I looked up, the other teacher was now handing ME the tissue box and urging ME to pick it up. Ugh. Of course I had to pick it up. The whole learning environment had been interrupted and 30 eyes were gazing at me and wait for their teacher to “be brave”.
“Fine,” I said aloud, picked it up, and ran to the garbage can. Now cue the teacher across the hall with the adhered louse.
“Look what I found!” She shows me.
“Oh no! You can’t out do me, I just killed another cockroach!” I told her as I went squealing from the room to scrub my hands like a surgeon.
When I returned we both got to check heads…again. Not a single positive case. So, we’re wondering if you can purchase these bugs? And if so, which one of you put them in our classrooms?
Have a “scratchtastic” night everyone!
