My first week of “occasional” teaching had its comic elements. Tuesday I filled in for a music teacher and it went smoothly except for showing the “Stomp” video to a Grade 5 class which pumped them up a bit much. Thursday with another Grade 5 class I went Nordic skiing at Mt. Mc in spite of forgetting my ski boots and only half of my feet fitting into the only rental boots that fit my bindings.

From vocabularycom: “A polemicist is a person who attacks someone else with written or spoken words … If you’re a polemicist, you have very strong opinions and you’re not afraid to state them — even if they hurt other people … The word comes from polemic, ‘a strong verbal or written attack,’ which has a Greek root, polemikos, ‘warlike, belligerent, or stirring up hostility.'”
My sweet tooth had a Merry Christmas! Guess I’m in the right business since in my cupboard there are three awesome products to deal with the hangover 😉
