school supplies, a beginning.
don’t EVEN get me started on my love for school supplies. one of the many benefits of my chosen profession is the opportunity, nay, necessity of buying new supplies each school year.
it reminds me of one of my favorite films, you’ve got mail [don’t judge!], when joe fox says:
“don’t you love new york in the fall? it makes me want to buy school supplies. i would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if i knew your name and address.”
[emphasis mine, for the phrase that makes me just swoon.]
a bouquet of newly sharpened number 2 pencils would smell, to me, divine. almost better than flowers.
until then, new folders will have to suffice.
i think these will be my new “to be graded”, “already graded” and
“dear lord, WHEN was that assignment due that you are turning in so egregiously late?” folders for each class.
