apparently there is a time and place for down-twinkles…

… My son had quite an eventful day today. Now I have to make an appearance at the principal’s office. Luckily, for your amusement, he blogged about it.

My mom and her friend went to see the people living in tents downtown. She said they were down there protesting being poor and that they hate the government and taking showers or something like that. She told me about their hand signals and we watched a youtube video. We thought the twinkle fingers were really funny. Anyway, my new teacher this year is always talking about how awesome she thinks Obama is and how she supports the people living in tents and not brushing their teeth so I told her about my mom going down there. She seemed impressed that I knew about it but she doesn’t think it’s too funny that now I use down twinkles when she says something I don’t like. At lunch today I showed my friend Jake and Josh down twinkles and when she gave us homework over Thanksgiving we all gave her down twinkles in class. Now my mom has to go meet with the principal next week. My teacher has no sense of humor. My mom said she wasn’t mad and that she just might down twinkle the principal.

    Not to kill the buzz, but what are twinkle fingers? Is this a synonym for flipping the bird?

    I am in my mother’s kitchen doing the preliminary Thanksgiving cooking and grousing. I so needed this! As a former Jr. High social studies teacher, if kids had given me down twinkles for assigning homework over a 4 day weekend, I would not have needed to involve the principal. I would have given them extra credit for being up on current events and for awesomeness and then assigned an extra little essay on respecting legitimate authority just to be sure it didn’t become a habit.

      WIN! Especially the last part of that sentence!

    Down twinkles for the teacher. Maybe she should stop trying to brainwash the children in her classroom with her political opinions and not get angry when they are smart enough to out do her. ROFL!
