We have online school.
Incase I didn’t mention, that’s BAD NEWS. You’d think it’d be great, but I can tell you from experience that it’s NOT.
Let me elaborate: online school is boring, frustrating, stressful, confusing, boring, nightmare-ish, infuriating and most of all BORING.
But, there’s good news! Online school is hilarious! I’ve gotten SO many great blog post ideas these last couple of weeks, but haven’t had the time to write them up.
Par example, le chat Google Meet.
Ooopsie. Sorry. Switched to french for a bit there. Must be all the HORRIBLE ONLINE LEARNING.
What I meant was:
For example, the Google Meet Cat.
I’ll let her introduce herself.
Hello, friends! How do you do? I have been asked to introduce myself in order to help a Miss Lily C tell the story of my owner. Well, there isn’t much to introduce, really. I’m a cat. My name is Nibs. I’m kind of black and brown and splodgy. And I really like soup.
…ok. Well, that wasn’t really what I had in mind, but I have to be at a science lesson in ten minutes, so I really don’t have time to complain.
Nibs belongs to my geography teacher (you can read up on him here) and recently starred in one of his lessons (along with his baby daughter). As usual, we were learning something useful (but equally dull), when the lesson began to get more interesting.
“So if the birth rate is higher than the death rate, what problems could that create for the national economy? Lily, do you know?”
“Oh. That’s my daughter. She must be waking up! I’m on nap duty, today, you see. Yeah. My wife’s taking my other daughter over to nursery right now. So I’d better explain this quick, huh? So basically… what was I saying? Oh, right, Lily. You-“
“Need to tell me how a low-“
And it is here that our story begins.
“Hang on a sec, I’ll have to get her up…”
“Ahhh, there we go. Do you know how population growth can effect the rate of development in a country, Eloise?”
Ummmmm…. I don’t think she does.
Fifteen minutes later, for the first time in our lives, we’ve have a geography lesson from a one-year-old.
And it doesn’t stop there.
“Oh. My cat. Say hello, everyone. I actually have two cats. Yeah. The other one’s a bit shy though. I’m on cat/baby duty, really. Now, Nibs, why don’t you help me teach my class, too, hmmm?”
I don’t think that’s going to happen.
“Ok! Aargh! Stop it, stop it!”
“You can go early, guys- you- aaargh! Just go!”
