Lordy...All this talk of bleach reminds me of my first year (cave dwelling)
teaching projects in my repertoire...which, as I VAGUELY remember...was
rather a VERY slim portfolio...but that's another story. Anyway, I was
having my mid. schoolers doing the "blowing bleach through a straw" project
and kids started dropping like flies. Not only did they hyperventilate, the
odor was horribly yucky even though both doors were open. Nobody seemed to
worry about this except me so it was the first and last time for that
adventure...but I privately always knew the answer to "Why can't Johnny
read?"!
