What’s in Your Skiff?

Frenzy is the best word to describe the week after Halloween in a large elementary school. Candy is in great supply. And sugar is coursing through the mouths and veins of already hyped-up kids. Although this may make the local dentists happy, the frenzy inspired by the unyielding supply of Jolly Ranchers, Starbursts, and Reese’s Pieces complicates the lives of elementary school teachers.

One frazzled teacher sought refuge in the teacher’s lounge during her planning time.

Upon her entrance, she was greeted by a peer: “How are your young-ins doing today?”

Her reply was classic: “My crowd’s worser than a skiffload of hard crabs.”


Here’s hoping your skiff is brimming with GOLDfish!
