Still On Ice

The doctor I saw after the Girls' Bathroom incident on Friday told me the soreness would probably be worse today than it was yesterday. I wish I could say he was wrong. Per his instructions, I have an ice pack on my hip at this moment, and it is helping. The doctor I saw is actually a Certified Physician's Assistant. I've seen him before and, to tell the truth, like him better than any of the doctors at this particular clinic. Tomorrow, I head back to the classroom. Wish me luck.

I would walk in there with a cane and overdo the sympathy trick. And then I would go up to the two girls who took you on!

The two girls who were fighting won't be back to school for several days. I'm not one much for playing on sympathy, though I will use it if I must.

@DWDavis use it just long enough to get them to say that they are sorry, and then beat them with your cane!

She understands why I felt like I need to stay out the school year, but she is determined this will be my last year teaching in public school.

@Brittnyrose There is a local Catholic School that might have an opening for me for next year.

@DWDavis Fingers crossed. At least those two troublemakers won't be around for a while!

Thank you. I hope so, too. I'll take my Aleve in the morning and try to stay off my feet as much as possible.

I'll do the best to show no pain. I'm hoping that the weekend being between the incident and my return to the classroom will keep the talk about the whole thing to a minimum.
