poem :by shira

( this may be sadder than Anne Frank's diary)

I am a girl who doesn't like homework.
I wonder if I will have homework.
I hear my friends laughing.
I see them playing ball.
I want to play with them.
I am a girl who doesn't like homework.

I pretend I have no homework.
I feel happy now.
I touch the clouds.
I worry my dream will end.
I cry when it does.
I am a girl who doesn't like homework.

I understand that I must do my homework.
I say "I can do it" and I can.
I dream that tomorrow will be better.
I try to fulfill my dream.
I hope I wont have a lot of homework.
I am a girl who doesn't like homework.

lag b'omer

lag b'omer. (this is the day we shave in america during sefirah) it started with a phone call from my nephew who was walking home from his medura at 5:00am . he knows he can always call his uncle yaakov at any time! we were just sitting down to havdala and he was abloe to join us in this special event as we ebbed shabbos away together. in the morning we went to kensington with dad. we got to see rosco the clown! one of red headed children who will remain nameless asked if he was a real clown or just a person dressed up like a clown. we then saw a turtle and i asked said shild if she thought it was a real turtle or something else dressed up like a turtle. the lady holding the turtle then told her it was really a racoon in a turtle shell. we also got to see blue heron's in their nests, they are big birds in big nests and then zayde toopk yael and shira for a bike ride and devo and chanalana and ahron and yehuda and myself went to a park in kensington. we had a great time. then we had a bbq with dee and harry and dad. good times good food.

We have a Machloket in the house.

Who of you puts a comma after each item in a list, but not before the "and"? And who puts a comma before the "and"? Both are acceptable grammatically, by the way.

Etiquette Dilemma

issue of the day - do you speak up or just stay quiet
problem - teacher is walking around with a rather large sticker on the back of her shirt - it says 18months

class 1 decides not to say anything cuz maybe it will just fall off

class 2 decides it would be chutzpadik to talk to a teacher about her clothes and her clothing problems

class 3 decides that they can pretend they dont see it - and whisper about it quietly

girls in the hallways and lunchroom and gym decide that if the teacher is still wearing it at this point of the day - she wants to make a fashion statement

class 4 - halfway through last period, girl with no tact yells - why is that sticker on your back, is the shirt from target?

ten minutes before school ends I subtly yank a huge white sticker off of the back of my black shirt
