What The French, Toast. Part 2
A Seattle High School student who volunteered at a third grade elementary school class, was told by the teacher if she wanted to hand out her plastic eggs with candy in them, she could not call them Easter eggs. Take a deep breath, and read on.The high school teacher said the girl could hand out the eggs if she called them "Spring Spheres"...Are you kidding me?! The teacher announced that the girl had "Spring Spheres for the kids, but when the girl showed them the treats, the kids a were like, wow, Easter eggs. The student said the kids knew what they were. The student also pointed out that eggs are not spheres, and that is geometrically incorrect. Let's point out some basic rules that have been around a while:
Santa is overweight,that's what makes him jolly, and he brings toys to children. On the Fourth of July we eat hamburgers and hot dogs and blow stuff up with fireworks. On Thanksgiving we over eat, turkey, stuffing, mashed taters, and home made pies, and we do it with family. On Labor Day we camp, play horseshoes, sit by the fire and make s'mores, and we teach our grandkids how to fish. On Easter, our kids and grandkids wake up to find an Easter basket filled with stuff that will rot their teeth, then they hunt for eggs in the yard, then we all eat ham and scalloped taters. Memorial Day, we do just that. Washington's Birthday, let's face it, another excuse for a three day week end. Veterans Day, the day we all stop what we're doing and pay tribute to the men and women who have given the US the opportunity to do what we do during these holidays.In my opinion, that is the most important holiday we celebrate, because it points out every year, that our own Government is not doing nearly enough for our soldiers returning home from war.
Bottom line is this. You do what you do for the holidays and I won't bother you one bit. If I want to say," Merry Christmas", or call spring spheres "Easter Eggs", treat me with the same courtesy and leave me alone.
