A Case of the Good Mornings
When I was in high school our principal had a habit of saying "Good Morning" in greeting, regardless of the time of day. We found it both funny and annoying. Now I am in the teaching arena and seem to have caught a case of the good mornings. I think it was intentional with Dr. Westerberg. But I think my brain just goes on siesta on the afternoon and I am lucky if I know what class I am teaching. The kids laugh, and I always catch myself after it is out of my mouth and say "or afternoon, or whatever time it is. I know you kids just woke up even though you have been here all day, so it is like morning to you." But I shouldn't have to go through that explanation every time. I need to snap out of it. More vegetables & less wine might help my cause. There has to be a better solution.
