It just gets better and better...
I should be doing this on twitter, but I hate to join that revolution so please excuse me for exploding here...but honestly people...I just had what could only be one of the idiot Junebugs in to ask, "Where is the bike man at?" Now first, is English being taught in high school any more, because you certainly wouldn't know it. Anyway, I answered, "He isn't open any more because bikes aren't allowed on the boardwalk after 10 a.m." So then he asks, "So wheres he at?" So I feel perhaps I haven't made myself clear and answer, "He's home." But he isn't going to be deterred, or he simply doesn't understand my English, so he asks, "So do you know where hes at?" And again I repeat, "Yes, he's home and he's not coming in until the sun comes out." Apparently that was the sentence he was waiting to hear as he then went back out the door. It's intelligent conversations like this that keep my day moving. I have to admit the "Leave no child behind" is certainly working out well.
