A Perfect Way to Start the Week

So the Oscar winner's speeches were much better than the Golden Globes. I guess they got my notes. Both Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o were quite eloquent (if you take away Leto's ums and uhs) and even made me cry. But my favorite part of the Oscars was actually the Pepsi Mini commercial. Never mind that, as Jason kept pointing out, mini cans have been around for quite some time. This commercial is literally my Dad's dream. At least once every few months and more often around Christmas, he asks if we can just have one day where we all speak only in movie quotes. We have yet to make his dream a reality, but this commercial shows us that with a lot of editing, it could be possible.
Also, just so that you know, the most tragic thing about being a teacher is not the class size or the pay or even the bureaucracy. Oh, no. The hardest part of being a teacher is that the people you spend the most time with, your students, most often don't get (or choose not to acknowledge) your awesome references. Shrilly shouting, "Help is on the way, dear!" just gets a couple strange looks, and no matter how much they need to hear it, when you kindly tell them, "Your ego is writing checks your body can't cash," they look at you like you are speaking another language. I'm guessing it is going to be the same with parenting...
