In which Rebecca faces continued persecution...
So I got called to the principal's office today. Get this. He was concerned that when he sees me at lunch I'm always eating by myself and reading a book. Are the other teachers being cliquey, he asks?
SERIOUSLY?? Am I really in that episode of Gilmore Girls? Isn't the fact that this is actually on the principal's agenda proof enough that the school is plenty welcoming? (Soooo welcoming. Tooooo welcoming!!) Are teachers not allowed to be nerdy? Is reading not appropriate behavior for school?
I assured him that really, everyone is VERY NICE TO ME. I am VERY HAPPY. It's just that once upon a time I was a little girl who used to read at recess. In the future I will schedule some time for schmoozing at lunch. Can I go now?
