I ate chocolate today…

…and I didn’t die:)

Maybe I should let you in on some Bethany Trivia: I don’t like chocolate and haven’t liked it for over half of my life.
I haven’t eaten it for a few years (as far as I remember).

Well today, one of my students sweetly shared a mini, dark-chocolate cube with me.  I politely took it, thanked her, then set it on my desk – to be enjoyed later, of course.

The lesson continued and she raised her hand, “Can I stand up?”
“Yes.”  (Assuming she wanted to throw something away).

She walked around to the side of my desk, picked up the chocolate, and again handed it to me, while saying, “Teacher, eat!”

She got me.  My dad would be so impressed by her.
I felt like I had no choice but to eat this detestable sweet.
So I did; all the while trying to keep a straight face and fake enjoyment.

much love!

 

if i’m not mistaken…

…today is someone’s birthday.
(actually, it’s probably many someones’ birthdays)

But, there is only one person I know, for whom I am writing this blog.
He is less than twice my age for over two years now;
but at one point he was much older than me.

b and d - little
yep, me as a baby

 

I could probably make this really wordy, but I think I’ll cut right to the chase
Happy birthday, Poppy!
