I don't like filling these things out. But then I dont have to like it, it just has got to be done. It doesnt give the real picture, but it gives people a handle on what I am like and we all need a starting point.
I have taught school for 18 years. I have a teenage son with whom I share custody with his mother. I like to make small wood projects and gizmos. I actually invented the better mouse trap.
Some people find my sense of humor a little odd. (I don't) The following is an example.
A Redneck Story
I grew up in a rural area and teach in an inner city. There has been a little culture shock for my students. When the reality television first came out, one my students came up to me asked "Would you eat a squirel?" I said yes and asked him if he had gone hunting. He then explained that he had seen FEAR FACTOR and the contestants had to eat a squirel. He looked at me a little funny.
The next week he asked me if I would eat a pig's brain. I told him that scambled eggs and brains was a great way to start the morning. He looked at me funny again.
The third week he was really enthusiastic. He came up to be and asked if I would eat a bull's testicle. I told him they were called calf fries and he needed to get out more.
I have an update on this...My teenage son has asked me not to embarass him when he has a girl over by discussing my eating habits and tastes
