Is this professional?

Over the Thanksgiving break my school had the floor waxed. As I walked in the building this morning and beheld the glorious sheen of the sparkling buffed floors it took every ounce of self control not to kick off my heels and run and slide down the long hallway in my hose.

Seriously, a lot of self control, that and the knowledge that it would be my luck that I would slip, fall, break my hip and be the youngest person to have to cry, "I've fallen and I can't get up".

HA HA HA! HA HA HA HA!! This was really funny K-T.

Really funny. Much like the conversations that take place at our dinner table. You bring out the best in all of us!

Thank you Katie....I hope you are blessed by the poem that the Lord gave to me. I feel as if this poem needs to be shared. Thank you for reading it.

i say you should have gone for it. and prayed that you had four extra pairs of hose, just in case you ran the original pair while sliding. and then the first, second and third extra pairs when you tried to hurriedly put them on in your storage clo-office.

you know i totally said that because i'm jealous and i'm in a cubicle. bah humbug.

I would have totally busted out every breakdance move I could. The Kevin Bacon footloose 2 knee slide woulda been tops on the list!

Or the Tom Cruise dance from Risky Business. I would have come home early for that one!

remember people, with the hose comes the skirt - and well, for the sake of decency, there are some breakdance moves that would be off-limits.

Footloose - Oh the dance moves in that movie are classic and yes I can do them ALL (even the random gymnastic feats in a barn - remember i live in the country and barn gymnastics are what we do to entertain ourselves)

Risky Business - please see the above mentioned decency clause

I did share my desire to slide with wild abandonement to my elementary principal and she said she would want to do it with me (another reason why I love this woman) so you never know, after school a 28 and 57 year old may be sliding down the hallway in our stockings and darn I left my camera at home

Ok on second read I have a question for Steve - so if you found yourself in my position you would have partaken of the slippery floors and the fact that you would be wearing slide enhancing HOSE?

Excuse me did you just own up to being in a situation where you would be wearing HOSE? And we're not even going to talk about the fact that a skirt is part of the package deal with the hose. . . . .

you have some splaining to do mister

I was thinking that even before I read what you wrote.

I wouldn't have stopped myself. I might have even gotten something to ride on to slide better!

Sounds like so much fun.

All professionals slide down newly waxed floors in their skirt and hose.

You should have taken the opportunity. Actually, I am sure you have a Key... you can still go for it if you want. lol.

Duede if we're fighting in skirt, hose, and heels I so am going to win.

Yeah i think that you should have done it, and hey if one of your students happened to see it they probably would have thought that you where like the coolest teacher they have ever had..... although they probably already think that.

Logan - Ahahaha, not sure the kids at my school think I'm cool - in fact I know they don't because I make them follow the rules and that equals uncool with our kids.

But I am cool.

If you weren't supposed to do it, they wouldn't have polished the floors. Not sliding or dancing is like turning down your own birthday cake. Don't be an ingrate. Dance. Dance. Dance....
