This week’s wisdom.

27 Feb
1. Teaching fourteen third graders to make paper cranes is not a walk in the park.  I found a youtube video online that went through it s-l-o-w-l-y step by step.  As we watched the how-to instructions, they screeched at me, “pause it!  pause it!”  “I don’t get it!”  “I need help!”  Needless to say, we ran out of time.  Looks like I’ll be doing the beginning steps of fourteen paper cranes to catch them up when we continue on Wednesday.
2.  Using a prop such as a banana dog will become the talk of the town.  After using Webster as a key part of my sermon on Wednesday evening, he was mentioned at a women’s circle study the next afternoon and a Pampered Chef party I attended the following evening.  I’m thinking people will now associate me as the owner of the banana dog.
3.  Egg coffee.  Never had I heard of such a thing until the women of Mary Circle educated me.  I think it sounds rather disgusting but they emphasized over and over how “pretty” the coffee is when made this way.  That’s what I like to drink – pretty coffee. 
4.  “Don’t worry, Sweet Pea.  I’ll find you a man.  A rich man with one foot in the grave and the other one on a banana peel.”  This is what H. told me while I visited he and his wife at home.  Always a joker but also a gentleman.  He helped me put my coat on when I was ready to leave and made sure I had a Little Debbie cupcake for the road.
