You should haved titled this...Aisha And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Dayat least you day didn't start like this..."I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there's gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day."-ali
HEY... how do you know this story line by line? I do, but that's because I read it to my students a million and a half times....... but you're right, that would have been a much better title :) Maybe like Alexander I should move to Australia!
This is one of my son's (and mine as well) favorite books. We all have days like this.
of course! who hadn't? i mean, we all experience BAD days ait??
Even when you have a bad day, see the good in the bad. I once did horribly on a differential calc test - I was just mad at myself, then I thought to myself (I learned that I didn't study something, now I can improve. AHAH)
Ever had one of those days...Where a bomb falls on the little shelter you had killing 5 members of your family...Sleeping in a grave in Afghanistan at night because you don't have a warm bed...Having to walk 10 miles of steep mountain ridges and land mines to get one bucket of (unsanitized) water...Only having half a slice of bread to divide between you and your siblings...I do feel sorry for you though...but not because your make-up was discontinued (how tragic)...but because there must be something seriously wrong with you to have the nerve to post this. Please do us all a favor and stay in bed everyday.
Whatever. HE (she or it... too cowardly to state a point with a real name apparently) has a point about the sad circumstances in the world but it's ok to rant about YOUR bad day. It's all relative and it's your blog so just ignore the closed minded.
Anonymous- it's a parody from Alexander and the horrible terrible no Good very bad day, a very famous children's book. The picture next to the post is a picture of Alexander. If you read the rest of my posts you would get an insight to my feelings about the world situation...not to mention that the only schools I teach in are schools with refugee populations to work with the children who've gone through the situations you've descirbed. Losing fathers or others to stray bombs, etc. I'm assuming you do'nt know me to take such offense by my post... please don't make snap judgments and take posts out of context.
Anonymous is obviously very upset about the world he/she lives in (as we all are).....but obviously is so disconnected from his/her own reality that they don't recognize that a bad day is nevertheless a bad day no matter where you live in the world or your socio-economic situation.
I love to hear from you!
