Weather changes and resulting classes

Several comments about the Willy Wonka post from last week. I kind of think a crush on Gene Wilder is even more disturbing than those Oompa Loompas, but that's just me (Sorry, Bonnie). I feel I should revise my earlier description of my kids. They're not really Oompa Loompas. Actually, I'd call some of them Loompas, because they're lacking that certain sense of. . . "Oompa!"
Even though the weather has grown warmer, something must be in the air (or in the food), because kids were barfing left and right today. Three kids from my class alone went home sick today! One of them kept coughing in a way that reminded me of Snots the dog from the movie Christmas Vacation. "Oh, he's just yakkin' on a bone."
YUMM-MAY!!
Tomorrow will be a VERY long day. Parent-teacher conferences are tomorrow night, running until 8 o'clock. Can't wait! But I should have some interesting stories for Wednesday. . .

Sorry Teach--but in my day Gene Wilder was very sincere and sexy. Ask his wife Gilda--- What a book! He helped her die gracefully and without remorse. He cared for her in a way I wish most men would do. He was a fine actor and hurt so deeply when Gilda died. What more could you ask of a man? Really sexy physically? No! Really sexy as a husband, yes!! He was not a Ompa-Lompa. And because of Charlie and The Chololate Factory, he was more real than any newer version would, or could, do with the grace of this man/husband/actor.

Gene is in his element in the smash hit Condor Man.
