I was tagged today by Blueberry Plains for a 6+6+6 meme. That is 18, right? Good Lord, I caught myself multiplying 3x5 on the calculator the other day. It’s sad, I know.
So anyway, dear, sweet Debbie has assigned me the task of going to my 6th folder in my pictures, and finding the 6th photo and posting it. If you are a long-time reader, you’ve already seen this photograph as I’ve done this meme before. I could have cheated but I’m so pure of heart and all. *wink* And it’s so darn cute, that I thought it was worth posting again.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:
The Giggle Girls
As I recall, this photograph of D2 and pals was taken while they were supposed to be rehearsing for a FBLA competition. They don’t look like they are working too hard but I guess they worked hard enough as they took first place and made it to state finals.
I stole the name “Giggle Girls” from their biology teacher who loved them to pieces but didn’t particularly like all the giggling that went on during class. She worried that while their shenanigans didn’t seem to affect their grades, it could be distracting to the other students.
The girls would make up silly poems and sayings to remember things they needed for the test. The other kids came to appreciate their methods and even praised them for helping them to study too.
Nevertheless, the teacher felt they needed to be separated. D2 was put in the back of the room in the middle of a group of kids who dressed in all black, were very pale and wore black makeup. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that particular style) D2 sulked. She missed her friends. She complained to the teacher. “Ms. A, You can’t leave me back there in the midst of all that darkness. I need more color in my life.” She was moved……eventually.
I’m now supposed to tag six other bloggers to do this six thingy too. Once again, I’m tagging all six of you. You know who you are. You don’t? YOU!
I also want to bring your attention to two great giveaways!
My good friends, Pseudo and Oz Girl are both having giveaways. I’m pretty sure I get extra credit for telling you about it here which puts me in the running to WIN, WIN, WIN! But darn, now that I think about it: If I tell you about it, you’re going to enter and then maybe I won’t win. Let’s just forget I ever mentioned it. mkay?
