I've had early morning recess duty this week. It's like riding herd on cats - impossible! While doing my best to get 150 kiddos into the building after the bell, one of my little boys caught up and began walking with me.
He said, "I smoked some weed yesterday."
"Damn! Now I've got to call DFS. My whole day has changed in an instant!" I thought. Take a breath and get some details - DFS always wants detail, lots of details....
"You did this yesterday??"
"Yes, my friend and I got into trouble. We started this fire in a grill and there were lots of weeds in it and there was a big fire and lots of smoke!"
Whew, another bullet dodged!
