Clearly, There is NO Paper Correcting Fairy

Ok, so being a teacher, I sometimes bring home papers to correct. I know, SHOCKING to all you non teachers, who believe that teachers lead slack lives of having every weekend off, working 7-3, summers and holidays off, yadda yadda.

Well, it's not true (as many of you know!). So....here is what I have to say.......WHERE THE F*@( was the paper correcting fairy this week? Seriously. I left my pile of papers on the coffee table for 4 days. I sent positive thoughts to said fairy. Left the house last night to attend my friend Sally's "Wii Challenge", said a prayer to the correcting fairy only to arrive home to an UNCORRECTED pile 'o' papers and utter defeat by Sally, the now Wii Champion. DAMN!

Today...went and did some coupon shopping (and scored some great deals). Said prayer to so-called fairy. Nuttin. Went to lunch at mil's house for Sunday Cafe. Nuttin. Damn it all....I've decided there is NO correcting fairy.

Guess I shouldn't have procrastinated all week long, huh? Maybe I'll say one more prayer and hope for the best in the morning. I'm tired. I have to get up early to go to work.....gee....I wonder if the laundry fairy visited today while I was gone.....if not, I may not have anything to wear to work....

With that note....i'm off to bed to do some reading. I wish I could say that I'm going to correct the pile of adding/subtracting papers, but NOPE, not gonna do it. Maybe tomorrow...

Totally get how you feel. That bizatch dish washing fairy skipped my house AGAIN this weekend too. I hate her.

University professors have paper correcting fairies.... you know those people that only teach like 9 hours a week anyway @@.... maybe you need to change the way you think!

My favorite: pic of you, sis, and McShorty. Just charming. Norman Rockwell lives!

Wisdom gleaned from 2 Dicks (Nixon and Cheney): When I was little I prayed and prayed for a new bicycle. Finally I realized that God doesn't work that way so I just stole one and asked for forgiveness.

Auden: "I love to sin. God loves to forgive. The world is admirably arranged."

I SO could have written this post a few months ago!

Not having to grade papers is probably one of the BEST things about my new job.

Here's to hoping the fairy shows up soon!
