Sometimes They Die

One day in the spring of the year a student brought in a 5 gallon bucket full of garter snakes. He was very proud of his accomplishment. He told me that there was a big pile of rocks in the field next to his house and they just kept coming out from under that pile and when they did he caught them.

I looked in the bucket and noticed that about ½ of the snakes were dead. When I asked how that happened? He told me that sometimes when you “catch em” they die…. The phrase was accompanied by his foot stomping down hard on the floor.

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
