Bring it On (the weather, that is)

Q: What do you get when you combine 3 squirrelly classes with the following?:

1. Voting for the school's equivalent of Sadie Hawkins "king".

2. Threat of a MAJOR winter storm and possible snow day tomorrow.

3. Lock-down drill in which all doors are to be locked, shades pulled and
students out of view of doors-lined up against the wall, lights out. No one
leaves, no one enters.

A: A whole lot of no work. What a waste of a day!

Yes, I'm thinking this would have been a great day to stay in bed. Oh except for the SH king vote...that is life changing, important stuff. Your school's version of Super Tuesday!

Wow. So few people have even heard of Sadie Hawkins lately. What on earth is a Sadie Hawkins "king?"

Is he the poor soul who Sadie outran?

I think it's backlash from Title 9. There's a Homecoming Queen, so there needs to be a male counterpart for the girls-ask-the-guys dance, I guess. Our particular dance isn't actually called Sadie Hawkins- it's called Spree. Spree King has a much nicer ring to it.
