... yesterday was open house at Emerald's school. We were all there in the "sanctuary" (= "church") listening to the principal talk IN NO AIR CONDITIONING! God, I went from eight hours putting away books to an hour and a half of no air conditioning.
There are a few problems I have with Emerald's school. One is that they don't keep up the place. There's wild grass around the perimeter of the school, certain rooms look like they're in mid-construction, and no a/c apparently. The second problem I have is the neighborhood. It's not the friendliest place in the world to have kids. Bit ghetto. Worries me a tad.
When we reconvened in Emerald's classroom I overheard one of the parents say to the teacher "Well, her obvious problem is that she doesn't recognize letters." God. What a fucking dunce!
My kindergartener can sing an entire verse of the song Rock Lobster AND do the guitar parts! She can also write I Love South Park, draw her favorite characters, and then give a detailed description of her favorite episodes.
So lick my ass, you bitch parents!
When the other parents left the classroom (after only talking to the teacher 4-8 minutes TOPS) he said to me ...
"Now that the other parents are gone I can tell you that Emerald is the best kid in the class. She's basically leading the other kids."
Here's audio of four year old Emerald singing "Rock Lobster!"
