Vulcan mind probe baby

me as vulcan copy

This is exactly how I saw myself on the first day of school. The kids in my class were itchy, but for the most part compliant. However, and there is always a however…. one decided to be Dennis the Menace’s worst counterpart.

This particular student is troubled. His home life is not particularly Ozzy and Harriet and he tried to stab me with a pencil. Luckily I saw it coming, swung my arm to block his and took it out of his hand. It was not pleasant and could have made it a very bad day for both of us.

Tomorrow is a new day and the birds will chirp.

I have degrees in art and was an art director for 30 years.


  1. Hey Bar-
    Hopefully for you and Dennis the Menace 2.0 this relationship will turn out to be a valued one. I imagine at the end of the year lil Dennis hugging you as you have both grown to love and respect the other.
    Wishful thought I suppose.
    May the days that follow be increasingly better.
