Lipstick in School

I had no idea what I was going to put on my blog today until I read this little gem in my hotmail.

Considering that last night was back to school night at the high school, I thought this was both funny and appropriate:

Lipstick in School

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington 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 bathroom. 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.

She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the Custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses). To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she 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.

There are teachers and then there are educators.

I would like to thank all of the WONDERFUL eduactors and mentors who have touched my daughter's life. People like Michelle Thompson who was Manda's pre-school teacher, Carrie and Lisa who are the dance directors who have had a positive impact; and to the Roseville City School and the Roseville Joint Union High School Districts:

You do make a difference, and you are appreciated!
