To that teacher who tried to taunt me earlier this week by saying I don't love my country: screw you.
Such gifts are more than generous. They involve not just the expense of the gifts, but also the caring that goes into picking out something specifically for me. I am humbled at such benefaction.
Here's a quote from the card. This is a genuine quote, I'm not making it up. "Thanks for being such a great teacher, and being a conservative in a sea of libs!"
To those commenters who sometimes try to use my students to attack me by saying they feel sorry for my students: screw you.
What was it David Bowie said in Changes?
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're going through
And plenty of these children appreciate it--or their parents would never even know about it.
