June Blog Challenge Day 4: CRAZY
Hmmm.... the word crazy... what a word choice! Would I say I'm crazy? Well, I'm a teacher, don't all teachers have a slight element of craziness in them, considering we corral young children for seven hours a day, work an additional 2+ hours outside of school, are expected to wear many hats, including parent, teacher, nurse, shrink, mediator, coach, referee... you name it. Oh, and have I mentioned the fact that teachers don't go into the profession for the pay?
Anyway, I'm not a big fan of the word. I feel like I grew up surrounded by crazy. Reality was, while I grew up in a pretty chaotic house, and I was the only "normal" one, I was made to feel like the crazy one. My parents and siblings made sure of that, and took every opportunity to remind me of so. Funny thing is, even though I'm an adult, they still manage to remind me how *crazy* I am sometimes. Some things never change. Thankfully I have, and continue to!
I do use the word, occasionally, to describe things that are really off the wall. Otherwise, I tend to try and avoid it, cause it doesn't leave the greatest taste in my mouth.
