-Chair

You think being a chair is bad -- imagine being a toilet. Now *that* is a thankless job.

It also now occurs to me that I haven't thanked my floors in awhile. If they weren't around, who knows where I'd be? (Well, a lot closer to my downstairs neighbors, that's where.)

I wish that my room had a floor;
I don't care so much for a door.
  But this walking around
  Without touching the ground
Is getting to be quite a bore.

Amen to the public school teacher. My father was a public school teacher, and he complained about the low pay,etc. at times, but it seemed to me that the parents, kids respected his efforts. These days, it seems like everyone is an expert on primary education, despite having no training in it. I deeply admire good public school teachers, but I would never sign up for that low pay and abuse. A shame we treat our public servants as we do these days.
