-I recently learned that Caesar dressing has anchovies and raw egg yolk in it and that salmonella can be carried on the shell of an egg, not inside. So if you wash an egg with antibacterial soap before cracking it, you lower your chances of getting salmonella if you eat something with raw eggs in it.
- I will have four days of substitute teaching this week. I'm totally a productive member of society!
- Which brings me to this subbing quote (about my eyes, again. Apparently none of these children have ever seen green eyes):
Girl With Hand On Hips Who Is Looking At Me Distrustfully: "You are wearing contacts."
GWHOHWILAMD: "Uh, yeah you are."
Me: "Nope, no contacts."
GWHOHWILAMD: "There is NO way your eyes are that color."
- Yesterday, I went shopping for "teacher" clothes. (I worked in an office for four years, but since I dealt with people mostly on the phone and not in person, I sometimes dressed a little less than professionally. Since I'm teaching now, I need to beef up my professional wardrobe.) I bought a pair of forest green dress pants for $10. Can I wear green pants without looking like a weirdo? Stay tuned to find out.
- I also found a sweater/ shawl thing that I'm not totally sure I understand, but it was $4, so I bought it. (If there was a shopping Olympics, I'd be sure to get a medal.) The sweater has long sleeves, the back is short like a shrug, it's open in the front, and the front hangs down long, like a shawl. I can't find a picture of what I mean, so hopefully the fashionistas among you know what I mean and can tell me how to wear it. Wrap the front around my neck? Leave it hanging? Use it to lasso misbehaving kids? Help!
