File Under ...

Words You Never Thought You'd Put Together to Make a Sentence, and Then When You Are Saying the Sentence You Think, "This Sounds Weird.":

"Yes, it's absolutely okay to interrupt in order to say THERE'S A ROACH ON MY SHIRT."

omg that's horrible. *cringe*

BTW I was telling an educator out here about the concentration camp discussion you had with your kids, and was told that since you live in tennessee, probably concentration camps weren't as culturally relevant as they are out here in california where we're liberals and have 'like, a tolerance museum'

I just stared open-mouthed in horror.

I don't understand. By virtue of geography and political leanings, one ENTIRE STATE is more tolerant than another?

Can I speak to this person?

LOL. Beyond the insanity of her statement, I couldn't decide what bothered me the most: that she was an educator herself, or that the subject she taught was education. Seriously. I think it's an absolute crime that stuff is being paved over like this-- and since we've adopted this whole 'world police' agenda, shouldn't we be teaching our general populous about other cultures? The thing that bothered me about having to take a diversity studies class wasn't the fact that it was diversity studies, but the fact that it was MANDATORY because it was the ONLY place you could come across that stuff. And now, apparently, we out here in the west should know more about the Jewish turmoils, Mexican problems, etc and leave the aftermath of the Jim Crow laws to y'all over in Tennessee...

*the sad thing is, that wasn't the most asinine comment I came across from someone on my very first day of 'real' college*
