Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did NOT have the most ridiculously crazy week at work with enough not me material to suffice for an entire post. 

1.  I did NOT laugh hysterically (and I mean milk would have come out my nose, hysterically) when a male 5th grade teacher came into the office holding a pair of g-string panties that he found on the floor of his classroom.  Who lost their g-string in a 5th grade classroom??? OMG...I can only hope it was some how stuck in someone's pant leg or something. 

2.  On the very same day, I did NOT have a child fall in the mud and call home to have a replacement pair of pants brought to her.  Her father did NOT ask me if we had some pants in the lost and found for his daughter to wear.  I did NOT respond with "Ummm, ya, most kids don't lose their pants at school so, NO we don't have any in the lost and found."  

3.  I did NOT have to endure the entire school band in my office last Friday...flutes, clarinets, trumpets, electric guitars (with amps), and drums.  The following conversation did NOT occur in my office that day:

Band instructor:  "You are supposed to blow not suck."
Innocent student: "I don't understand...I only blow?"
Band instructor:  "Yes, don't suck on your instrument...just blow."  
Innocent student: "OK, I think I get it now."
Band instructor:  "Now put your instrument in your mouth and show me how you blow."  

I swear, I could make this up but I didn't.  I don't think I have this good of an imagination...even if I tried.  CRAZY!!!

4.  I did NOT have an entire conversation with my craz...I mean lovely mother while she was in the bath tub.  She called me and the whole conversation sounded like she was in a tunnel.  I asked her about it and she told me she was in the tub at the time and then the line went dead.  I am wondering if she dropped the phone in the tub and needs assistance at this time.  Maybe I should check on her??
