You made what?


My job silly...in fact I can honestly say that on a daily basis I hear things and deal with people and situations that most people will never encounter. There are moments of frustration, confusion, joy and mostly...laughter. There is usually at least one thing each day that makes me laugh out loud.

I was talking with a colleague from another school today and they shared the following story: This week they had over 15 students in their offices regarding pipes, Mary-Jane and poor choices. Yesterday they discovered three handmade pipes that were nicely carved, detailed...handmade pipes. One of the students who was in possession of one of the pipes was explaining their path of poor choices to a parent. At the end of his explanation the parent asked..."where did you get the pipe?" The answer..."I MADE IT IN WOOD SHOP CLASS!"

All I ever made in my wood shop was a giant set of stilts (That were adjustable!) and a pig shaped cutting board.

We made bread knives in wood shop class complete with hacksaw blade. They wouldn't give them to us until the end of the school year and with our parent's signing a form to allow us to take them home.

I didn't take this class...but I would expect to make any of the things you all shared...not a pipe!

Liam - Did you keep the stilts?

SP - I agree!

Kelly O - hmmm...maybe a trade? LOL! NOT
