Just Say "Eh, Whatevahs" To Drugs

I overheard some of the staff talking amongst themselves about "the incident" yesterday, in which four 6th-grade students were caught with marijuana on the elementary school campus. Silly me, I asked what was going to happen to them.

"A reflection," I was told.

"A... reflection? You mean, they brought marijuana to a grade school, and all they have to do is write a reflection?"

"Well, they had the marijuana, they didn't actually bring it to school."

At this point I allowed my anmoyance to overcome my better judgement, which was telling me to shut the hell up, and I asked, "so who brought it, then? A teacher?"

"No, no... it was another student."

This next part is what really got me.

"Besides, it was only leaves. It's not like it was buds."

I'd be interested in hearing from my LJ contacts who have children in school... or my LJ contacts who are students: AM I JUST BEING TOO UPTIGHT ABOUT THIS STUFF, OR WHAT?

The Other Side of Sjon

Oh my gosh! sjonsvenson is going all literary on us! His latest addition to The Alphabet Story Game is actually... long! And has dialog. And even character development! And... and there are coherent references to previous incidents in the narrative!

Most suprising of all... Kelly doesn't remove any of her clothing!

You're kinda raising the bar for all of us, there, buddy!

(Seriously, I've really enjoyed the last several additions to the tale; and I sense that one of our authors has kind of a thing for that youthful nymphette, the Cigarette Girl!)
