The Teacher Who Munches...

...on dogfood.

To continue the story of The Teachers Who Lunch, where we left off with a dastardly plot to prank the students, we must set the stage with the dogfood recipe.

My cousin prepared a baggie of Cocoa Puffs, Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries, stick pretzels, and Scooby Snacks. The latter are little bone-shaped graham crackers. Kudos, Cuz. That was a nice touch. I encouraged her to start a cough, and end up with, "Woof. WOOF." I told her to scratch behind her ear by moving her whole arm, like a dog's leg. I don't know if she did. What I do know is this:

At lunch Thursday, Cuz informed us that she had been eating a little 'kibble' for each class. She stood in the doorway between classes, holding the baggie and munching away. The kid who had first suggested letting Cuz eat dogfood walked into her room. "You KNOW that's dogfood, don't you?" Cuz took another bite, and with a full mouth, mumbled. "Mmm hmm. This is the snack mix Mrs. Hillbilly Mom gave me yesterday. Do you want some? It's really good." He shook his head. Others entered the class. The girls squealed, "Stop eating that! It's dogfood!" A few kids took a bite of the proffered contraband. They all told me about it when they got to my class.

Was that real dogfood that Mrs. Cuz was eating?
Yes. I put it in her mailbox after school yesterday. I was afraid she would share it with the kids.
She DID! She offered it to us, and some people ATE IT!
NO! I can't believe she would do something like that.
Well, she did.
It's not my fault. I kept it away from her until after school.

Seventh hour, I told them the truth. One kid turned to the class and said, "Don't you get it? They PRANKED us! Now they will try and do it again."


Funny thing...Cuz was not at school today. She had a substitute. The kids are worried that she ate too much dogfood.

I think you've got a kid that's actually been paying attention to what's going on around him. I'm impressed!

Poor kid's gonna be dead by next week, most likely. The police will find him in some dirty alley somewhere, his poor body covered with cat pictures.

Hillbilly Mom said...

I'll take the rap for the cat pictures, but nothing else. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

Nice touch...Cuz being gone....(insert evil laugh)

Cuz was back today, but I didn't get a chance to inquire as to her health, or ask if she went for a flea dip or a rabies shot.
