The Friday Funny

Wow, Friday really crept up on me this week. I'm a little late today. I had to get blood work done this morning. And late this afternoon we have our appointment to get our taxes done. What a fun day, huh? But it's Friday!!! And tomorrow is our monthly dinner with friends. This time we're trying a fun restaurant in the theater district, Seviche. And they have MOJITOS!!! I will be a happy girl.

On to the funny (and, no, I do not research these to see if they are true or not. I just find them amusing):
Lipstick in School:
According to a news report, a certain school in Garden City, MI was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the washroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.
Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. He called all the girls to the washroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, he asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.
He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
THE MORAL OF THIS STORY... There are teachers, and then there are Educators.

Okay, I was already grossed out by the kissing of the mirror before the "cleaning solution" was ever revealed! I'll have to remember such psychology when dealing with the 23 girls in my Scout troop! Thanks for making me laugh! Hope you only had to give blood at the lab today and not to the government, too!
