I HATE THEM! I WANT THEM ALL TO DIE! NO... WAIT!!! I WANT TO DIE! I WANT TO DIE RIGHT NOW! I WANT TO KILL MYSELF!!! I HATE THEM ALL! I NEVER WANT TO SEE ANY OF THEM EVER AGAIN!!!! I NEED A PRIEST!!!!

M'kaaaaayyyy... this was just one of the kids I was dealing with... let me see... this would have been Wednesday night, the first night at camp.

Needless to say, a swell time was had by all. Well, almost all.

At any rate, nobody died.

Oh, and... the cabins in which we stayed have appeared on the TV program Lost!

Sometimes a Cigar is Just a Cigar


Last week I showed the 4th-grade students how to fold a little booklet out of a single sheet of paper. I actually just learned this impressive skill the preceding week myself.

Then I asked them to write and illustrate a short story in their booklets.

They resisted.

"Resistance is futile," I told them. "And you'd better finish yours by the time I finish mine."

Which meant I had to make one, too.
