Dragongirl I've had a lot of teachers like that. in the 3 year Kibbie went to school she had 2 like that. Here good teachers are very hard to find. They don't get paid enough & leave.

I think I actually managed to outdo Sammy with pranks on teachers!

Granted, the whole class participated in superglueing one of our math teachers to her chair but still...-Innocent look-

My grandfather is a -massive- prankster. Just goes to show that growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional.

Oh, it was lett me assure you.

We also did the pranks that were merely amusing...such as waiting until the teacher went to the cupboard to collect some assetate cleaner (This was when we still used OHP's...xD ) and we just turned the piece of assetate over. Then he wondered why the mark wasn't coming off...xD

We used to bury swan vesta match heads in the ends of sticks of chalk. (They're the red ones that light on almost anything, as opposed to "safety" matches.)

We also used to dip the ends of the chalk into parafin.

I don't think we ever combined the two.

True, but I might want to do some sightseeing and I sure would not want to have an accident because I was driving on the wrong side (because I was a little tipsy).

And how 'bout some talents...Does MoM empoly talent? If so, a ride home would only be a hop-skip-jump away! Oh, and would this tour be on horseback by chance?
