I work with people half my age (literally) all day.  I have to remind myself to go to the bathroom when I get home because I'm too busy to remember this from 7-5.  I am constantly on my feet and running around and doing everything in my power to entertain those around me.  I just so happen to love this crazy, silly job.

I also just so happen to love the 20something minutes per day that I get to spend with my colleagues at lunch.  It is so refreshing after playing with my students all day to talk with a group of peole who know who Chuck Norris and U2 are, people who drive and vote and own houses and are involved in relationships that exist on more than a day to day basis.  My peers on my team and the other 8th grade team that have my lunch are warm and funny and sarcastic and hilarious.  It's nice to have some time to chat about our students... although many times it's nice to chat about anything but our students. 

Today we were all laughing until we cried at lunch.  The reason for this is not appropriate material for this blog.  Sorry :).  Mmm hmm.

The important thing is that these lunches are refreshing and energizing, and I think they help me to be better at my job.  Plus, I do get a little kick out of the envious looks that my delicious leftovers get each day.   

Thank you, adult lunch, you made my day.
