Presents

On Monday I was doing some teaching at my children's school and when I arrived the principal took me aside and whispered that she would like to see me before I left. During my 2 classes I kept wondering what it was that she wanted to tell me in secret - it was very much a secret rendevous that she seemed to have in mind. Then after I had finished teaching and finished eating the school coffee-lady's lunch (she seemed to be away for the day) I approached the principal and said I was going home. She shuffled me into her office, shut the door, snuck over to her desk and produced a bag which she secretly handed to me and whispered that I should take it home. I was a little perplexed, but thanked her all the same. When I got to the car and out of sight of the school I opened the mystery bag.... and.... I challenge you to guess what was inside the mystery bag that was obviously not meant to be shown to anyone else in the school - a special gift just for me. I'll send a prize to the first person who can guess correctly - one way to get people to comment I guess!

  3. This happened to me a few weeks ago - minus the free lunch and from the vice principal. My mystery bag had cardboard cutoffs - lots that she thought I could use at home for my English classes.

    I hope your's was more exciting!
