The first year I taught school and I had lower school, K-2 ,playground duty
with the headmaster who was filling in for a teacher. While the children
where lining up several boys were bouncing basketballs they had taken outside
to play with. We were waiting for them to settle down before walking inside
and I announced, "You boys in line, please hold your balls in your hands while
walking inside!" Well--I
immediatly realized what I had said in front of the headmaster, and I really
didn't want to look in his direction. When I did, his face was beet red as he
tried to keep himself from laughing. I was very careful from then on when
talking about "balls"!
Happy New Year to all!
