It’s Day 24 in the January Blog a Day Challenge.  This month will be over before I know it and then we’ll be back to seeing each other only a few times a week.  Unless someone wants to offer to pay me to blog . . . then I’ll be back every dang day till you’re all sick of me.

Silence.  That’s what I figured.

Speaking of silence, today’s topic is teachers and one lesson that has always stuck with me is a saying from my seventh grade teacher about silence.  Mavis, you may remember this one.

It goes a little something like this:

Question of the Day:  Chocolate, strawberry or vanilla?


  1. To answer the question: chocolate-covered strawberries.

    As for the quote, I am embarrassed to say that I don’t remember any of our seventh grade teachers saying that (although it does sound like something Ms. McQuaide would have said).

    • Nope, it was a man. A man with glasses. BTW I totally just checked out our old schools webpage to see what teachers were still there and there’s only a handful of veterans on there. I guess we are old and it was a long time ago.

  2. Well personally I am going to miss you everyday. But I can’t afford to pay you to blog. Wahhhh
    In order of preference, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry.

    • Yeah, you are a stay at home not bringing in the bucks anymore type now too. Someone should pay us just to be awesome, right? Right. You should get on that and let me know when you figure it out. You have my address for checks to be sent to.

  3. Pretty much, the answer is always chocolate. 😀

    And boo to not daily blogging, but I guess we will take what we can get.
