OK, kiddies...it's that day again...so let's do a quick little look around, shall we? You got somebody? Grab them, hold them, let them know what they mean to you...there's not enough of that in the world. Damn, just take a minute, make sure they understand how important they are. You don't? Then groove on the idea...you've been in love before; nice, wasn't it? And will be again...
Can't do that, even? Or just bitter? Then remember that St. Valentine was martyred...there, now the day is associated with a dead guy. And there's always the St. Valentine's Day Massacre to consider.
Me? I'm happy...very happy...Hell, I'm giggling. Yeah, me giggling. Weird huh?
According to a news report, a certain private school in Victoria recently was 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. 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.
