This past week was Teacher Appreciation Week. As I am an elementary school teacher, I made out like a bandit. Was given some nice coffee, a really nice (like $15 nice) travel mug for said coffee, a gift card or two, several ties and enough chocolate to capsize the Queen Mary. I am quite grateful, and hope I have earned them. One of the nice parts is that this largese came wrapped. In tissue paper. Since this is (approximately) the 650th consecutive Cat Appreciation Week here at ChezRanger, I passed on the goodies.
There is nothing in the world like this! Humans just don't understand... now, if only the students would give him deli-turkey and Laughing Cow Brand Spreadable Cheese, life would be perfect!
Actually, a couple of years ago, one of my students did give me a can of premium cat food. Absolutely one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever been given. Maddie agreed.
Go find a cat! Appreciate them!
