Friday Night 10pm: Realize I left my ring in the classroom. I could deal with it. I knew exactly where it was. I locked my door. I would get it first thing Monday morning.
Monday 8:15am: Start to clear off all the clay from the tables and put in the kiln room. Ask student helpers to throw out newspapers and wash tables. They do. I teach a whole day of school.
Monday 10:30pm: I am so excited to go to sleep early.
Monday 11:00pm: Sit up straight in my bed and gasp "MY RING" Call my husband at work hysterical. "Are you hurt, are you okay." I manage to get out that I lost the ring. I tell him I'm going to the dumpster at the school. He begs me to wait for him to get out of work.
Monday 11:13pm: Waiting for my husband to get out of work so we can go DUMPSTER DIVING. Hoping to find it in my trash bag.
WISH ME LUCK!
CAUTION: During Clay Season keep your rings safe. As art teachers there is so much to do and remember. Our ring is often in the way. I hope you can learn from my lesson and keep yours safe. I'll let you know what happens. . . trying to keep myself occupied till he comes home to go dig through the trash!
