Two items to update you on:
1) The pencil sharpener that I "fixed", is dead. It had been getting a lot of use lately, and it started to give off the odor indicated that it was burning. I took it apart and saw that a piece was starting to melt. It's really a lovely odor.
2) The STAFF team won the basketball lunchtime tournament. It was a lot of fun, plus I did not pull anything. But it is sad that by the end of the 8 minute (running clock) game, I'm out of breath and sweating like a hog. My class right after lunch always enjoys a sweaty math teacher.
