Day #338: Beware of Kiddy

Posted on

This is a fun one, enjoy! 🙂

Guess What I Did Today?

The Story:

Gather round ye imps and snotty-nosed wastrels, I have a tale that must be heard.  Tis the tale of that scurvy lass, the witch of the waters, the siren of the seven seas, a temptress and marauder the likes of which no man had ever seen before and will ever see again.

Fast forward through the day and about 100 emails later, 40 students asking all kinds of bizzaro questions and a number of other obligations and by mid-afternoon I was spent. Still not feeling 100%, the day took a toll on yours truly and sometimes I need to use pictures to express myself- enter Westley from one of my favorite movies, The Princess Bride. I think he handled the retelling of my day quite nicely, don’t you?

Love & Squirrels.
