A First Time Excuse

With Casey on vacation for a week, the classroom was definitely quieter. Only the tap, tap, tapping sounds of computer keys were usually heard. Today she is back. Full of life and conversation at the beginning of class before she too settles in to the tap, tap, tapping....

She came into class late--I asked where she had been. The age old excuse, "In the bathroom." was her reply. But, Casey, never one to conform to the norm had an addition to her excuse...

"I always hold it, you know, but I went to the doctor and he told me that if I don't empty my bladder and keep holding it that if four years or so I will have trouble going to the bathroom and that kind of scared me so now I am going all the time, my brother and his girlfriend were mad at me on the way home 'cause I kept having to stop and go to the bathroom..."

Whew...welcome back Casey. I missed you.

  2. I love "Full of life and conversation." Perfect words when you give the whole bathroom explanation.

  4. That is so funny! I love when you get "the whole story." She sounds like someone who makes the day a little more entertaining.

  5. Where do they come from? Others you have to drag stuff out of...and these you have to hope you don't get way more than you need to know.
