What does one do in mid January to escape the doldrums of the frozen tundra of the North Central Great Plains? Fly away on an imaginary plane to exotic places, that's what! And it's even better when you can get all your friends to imagine along with you!
This past week, to celebrate Homecoming, we did just that at our school. We all boarded LCS Airlines, taxied down the runway, and lifted up into the wild blue yonder.
You can't imagine what a welcome relief the warm sun, ukuleles,
Grass skirts, bright flowers, and coconut bras were. COCONUT BRAS!?! Yes, even the coconut bras.
Someone who couldn't FIND a flower lei came as a bird of paradise.
Miss Emily made sure we heard her gong all day long. She added a musical dimension to her travels. A ukulele on Monday, gong on Tuesday, guitar on Wednesday, and sleigh bells on Thursday.
Now, who do you suppose wore those red cowboy boots??? She wishes she still had her red 10 gallon hat to go with them!
Miss Debbie, the English teacher, came as one of the Antarctic natives.
The rest of us made do with the warmest winter wear we could find.
"Jeepers, creepers! Where'd he get those peepers!! Jeepers, creepers! Where'd he get those EYES???"
The final and favorite Homecoming week competition - - - Air Band. My seniors, seen here practicing, did their own interpretation of "Blue Man in Blue World."
Next week - - - it's back to the frozen tundra.
