Occupational Humor

Most of you that read my blog know that I work in education as a Permanent Substitute Teacher. I will graduate next May with a bachelors in English and Elementary Education from Kean University. I was bored at work this morning and decided to look at some jokes. As I read some hilarious stories, I came across a school house joke. As a teacher, I use sarcasm in the classroom a lot to combat "smart ass" kids. Here's the joke...

A teacher was wrapping up class, and started talking about tomorrow's final exam. He said there would be no excuses for not showing up tomorrow, barring a dire medical condition or an immediate family member's death. One smart ass, male student said, "What about extreme sexual exhaustion?", and the whole classroom burst into laughter.

After the laughter had subsided, the teacher glared at the student, and said, "Not an excuse, you can use your other hand to write."

***Some of us will get it today, some of us will get it tommorow. Either way, this is my post for the day.

...And so it goes

Friends Trivia

Once again, I am sitting at work bored and tired. I have been catching up on my blog readings and I see that a lot of people are posting blogs on friendships and relationships. I decided to take a moment to write about my friends. Then I thought, why not make it interesting. So.......I am going to give a description of each of my friends, without divulging their name. I want to see if they(my friends) can guess who each person really is, including themselves. ***Note***I limited this to those friends who have read my blog in the past and are current bloggers. There are other friends in the group not mentioned***..........Here goes:

1.He is "fabulous". He is a helpless romantic. Like me, he likes relationships. Although he likes sex, it doesn't define his character. He is extremely talented and great things can be expected from him in the near future. He sometimes needs a little space to gather his thoughts. He is my friend

2.He is "darling". He is always listening or helping a friend in need. He is also talented and I expect great "creations" from him. He his a very sexual person. He is one of the organizers of the group. He likes attention---- and he gets it! He has wonderful sense of humor, which is enhanced by the first person mentioned. He is my friend.

3.He is "dashing". He is the epitomy of sophistication. When he enters a room, the children take notice. He always has a pair of "reading" glasses on. He is the kind of person that will always give you a straight answer, with a hint of sarcasm. He is genuine. He always has your best interest at heart. He is my friend

4.He is "sexsational"He is my personality double. He is comfortable with who he is and could care less what others may think. Lets just say he is a fan of "spirits" (now be careful there are about 3 ppl in the group who are also fans of spirits) . He always has a smile on his face. A frequent line of his is "No No". He is my friend.

5.He is "wonderful" He is the understanding one. He is soooo open minded. You could always go to him with a problem and he will always have an answer. He is a true friend. He is very talented--I have seen it. Eventhough he is not totally "out" he is comfortable with who he is. He welcomes you with open arms and a open heart. He is my friend

6.He is "a doll" He is the sweet one. I wouldn't call him shy, but he is not the most talkative one in the group. He will always add his thoughts and is very comfortable doing so. He is another one who enjoys the "spirits" He brings pleasure to everyone in the group with his creations. He is my friend

7.He is "lovely" He hasn't been figured out by everyone yet. His quietness leaves him a little ambiguous. He is a caring person. He is also a helpless romantic, looking for love and a relationship. He probably would be a great catch for someone. Once he gets to know you, he will be glad to have you as a friend. He is lovely. He is my friend.

8.He is "fantastic" He is one of the three flirts in the group. Although he is another new addition to the group, he is well liked and accepted. His blog seems to convey that our sexual appetites might be similar. He is a nice guy who might just be a helpless romantic...maybe. He is my friend

Comment with the number and the correct name. If you get them all right, I will give you $1. Good Luck.

Ode to Love

Good Evening Bloggers,
Following Fuzzy's lead, I am posting a poem that I wrote. I have only had two relationships. I wrote this poem after getting into my second relationship. Unfotunately the relationship is over now. Hopefully I will be able to add more to the poem when I meet that right "one"
Knowing Love
By: Tyson

You think you know love, but it doesn’t know you…
Love ignores idol claims to it and searches on through.
I finally met love, and at last it saw me…
It approved of my claim and allowed me to see.
I took love as mine and vowed never to release…
Love returned my promise and we were both at peace.
I thought love broke our vows, causing so much hurt and pain…
But love soon reminded me that it was not to blame.
Love was angered by my strikes against its power and its might…
It was determined not to let go without putting up a fight.
Love caused chaos between my mind body and heart…
We eventually came to a compromise and decided not to part.
The years to follow, love lay dormant in my heart…
Like an un-charged battery, with out enough power to re-start.
Just when I thought that my heart and my mind were stable…
You entered my life, equipped with a pair of jumper cables
You jumpstarted love and gave it a burst of vitality…
Stronger than before, more powerful than I ever imagined it could be
Every day with you is like nourishment for my mind and my heart…
Love feeds off of this food like a killer whale to a shark.
I renewed my vows with love. New promises we both made…
We said we’d give our all and never let the passion fade.
Me and love made this vow, we’ve done all we can do…
The rest of the equation is all left up to you.
Love said it knows you. Love says that you are true…
So lets combine my love plus your love and add me and you.
These ingredients create a recipe that sounds and tastes so sweet…
Love will bind us together so that will never meet defeat.
...And so it goes
