That beat’s hittin’ us so we’re fightin’ back, it’s like we beat up that beat.
You made it through one whole week of 2010. Congrats! All I’ve watched since the start of the new year is The Jersey Shore. When I’m not watching, I keep generating my Jersey Shore nickname. They call me J-Pow in Seaside.
But more productively, this week I read a Beverly Cleary book with one of my students. Although he tried, he couldn’t get past that the book was written in 1967, and why a kid would ever build a skateboard from scratch if he had a perfectly good one from a store. We read a part where a kid “jerked away,” and he immediately wondered why the kid would start dancing out of the blue. He was a good sport, so now we’re reading the more modern Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.
Whether you’re jerking, whining, or fist pumping, have a great weekend. Ham and water for all.
