Oh ye of little faith... my PowerPoint presentation today did not lock up! Don't forget... I'm a Mac user!
I began my presentation with this image, while saying the following:
Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere!
This is Paul's house. That's his midnight ride parked out front. Apparently he had a few too many over at Sam Adams' place.
After the faculty meeting, one of the teachers... a 20-year veteran teacher... approached me and said, "your opening was really good! It sounded almost like poetry!"
Needless to say, this later image evoked absolutely no response from my audience:
If any of you listen to National Public Radio you'll get this, otherwise we'll move right along. Ah, I see. We'll be moving right along then.
