I love when the phone rings because there's always that opportunity that it might be Oprah on the other line wanting me to be one of her favorite things. Or, Martha asking for my opinion on glitter.
I looked at my caller ID and saw that it was the school. Damn. Anyway, I pick it up and hear the school secretary, Barbara, on the other end. She immediately tells me, "Don't worry the boys are ok." Which was funny because it never occurred to me that they weren't. My brain just doesn't work that fast these days. I immediately thought to myself "oh, good. She's calling about Andre's delinquent lunch tab that not only still hasn't been resolved, but is now up to $83.00." Seriously.
So, in my head, I hear Barbara's voice telling me "don't worry. We have everything under control. The perp has been caught and is sitting in jail right now." However, in my ear, I hear her say something to the effect of "head check....classroom....lice....Andres..." I'm not sure what else she said because at that point I lost consciousness as my head slammed into my desk.
You. have. to. be. freaking. kidding. me.
I told her, "I've never heard of anyone named Andres." She told me, "yes, you have. Come pick up your kid now." Damn.
So then it began. Upon arriving home I immediately locked Andres in the garage until I could come up with a plan.
Here we go........my plan:
I know for a fact, and no one can tell me any different, that there is a hummingbird behind this. I don't know how she managed it....but she did.......
So as of today, everything is calm on the homefront after a night of frantically washing every item in sight that would touch a head of hair. A brother of the accused was discovered to have them also, so it ended up being a one two punch. Luckily, the parents were unaffected
The two will remain at home today for another comb through before being released back into the wild. All I need at this point is some fur, a tail and a tree to sit in and I could easily be mistaken for one of those monkeys you see tending to her young on the Animal Planet.
Ok, I think it's 5 o'clock somewhere.......Talk to you soon.....Karin ;0)
