This first copy machine actually beeped about a dozen times before I switched to the 2nd copier. You'd think I'd learn after it beeped at me for the same thing twice. Nope. Not me!
Other than my copy debacle in the afternoon, I had a relatively nice day. My students completed their reading surveys and I have a nice load of data about their reading habits to sort through. Fortunately, the online form I used does a rather brilliant job organizing the data for me. So, I get to sit back and read it tonight.
Incidentally, Will Rogers once said, "We have a lot of monkey in us. Throw anything into our cage and we'll give it serious consideration." He was a fellow Okie and distant relative of mine on my mother's side of the family. When I was a youth, a friend of mine and I joined 4-H. Our club competed in a state competition and Will Rogers' quotes were part of our presentation. My quote was the one above. What do you suppose I had to wear while quoting the illustrious Mr. Rogers? Yep! I was dressed as a monkey--Head-to-toe---tail, ears, fake fur...the whole thing,
Oh! We won, by the way.
Have a great evening!
