Sandy Hook

No words can describe how horrific this event was.

I try not to think too hard about it; but we need to think about it.

I am sad about the lives lost - especially those whose lives were ahead of them, with bright futures.

Those adults who lost their lives trying to protect innocent children are my heroes.

They gave the ultimate sacrifice to save the lives they nurtured every day.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire community.

I figured it out!

It took me forever, but I finally figured out why I got the batman coffee cup!
The kid's mom mentioned today that he loved my joke, and that's why he got me the coffee cup.

I didn't want to be rude and ask what joke. I tell lots of jokes, sometimes on purpose, but mostly on accident. But I couldn't for the life of me figure out when I had made reference to batman!

Then it hit me. I had told them my favorite corny joke. And he had bought me a batman mug because he wanted me to know he thought my joke was awesome. And I didn't realize it for 2 weeks. What a horribly absent minded teacher I am!

And of course, you're dying to hear the joke, right? OF COURSE YOU ARE!

Q: what did batman say to robin right before they got into the batmobile?

A: "robin, get in the batmobile."

Told you it was corny.
