Fun Is Where You Find It

By this time on a Friday night, fun is where you find it.

I'm still at school, trying to get lesson plans done, tests written, new book packets prepared, papers graded and recorded -- typical "hot" Friday for me.

So, I'm reading along, and I hit the sentence, "Luego, en casa, cuido a tu hermano." (Later, at home, I take care of YOUR brother.)

I just can't resist! The thought of a junior girl, very bright, but very unmotivated to be all that she can be, caring for MY brother is simply irresistible. His NEW WIFE might proffer a few objections, too, but I've never met her and really have nothing to base that remark on, so I won't make it!

Instead, I add in bright red (one kid called it BLOOD RED) ink, "My brother is 53... He hardly needs care..." which will hopefully get a smile from her on Monday morning when she gets her work back.
