A (mini) photo essay

The kids at my school on the student council came up with a novel idea for this year’s pre-vacation rally. As a fund-raiser for the Make-A-Wish foundation, they sold tickets allowing students to throw whipped cream pies at teachers.

Why did I volunteer? Pick one:

A. I have “sucker” tattooed on my forehead.
B. I didn’t want to disappoint the student council kids (see A, above)

So I dutifully took my kids to the assembly, supervised their seating arrangements, and, along with the other volunteers, donned the garbage bag smock and shower cap thoughtfully provided by the student council.

The first round wasn’t so bad. Predictably, the principal suffered more than I.

On the second round, however, someone (several someones, really) decided I was far too clean.

The student council graciously handed ’round moist towelletes. . . until they ran out. I made do with some paper towels. One student, apparently deciding my need was greater than hers, offered me her hair tie. I accepted.

You know what’s sticky? Whipped cream.
