Honestly, I don't know how Chris does it.
It's not just because I generally don't care for other people's children. No, not at all. It's because I would find the endless grading of papers maddening. I'm talking men in white coats bringing me the shirt with extra long sleeves maddening.
I'm in the process of judging record books for the 4H Horse Department. I've been at it for three hours. Four hours last night. Looking at the same thing over and over, ad nauseum. My brain is numb, my eyes going cross.
Gee, only two more boxes to go....
Like I said, I don't know how Chris and his fellow teachers do it. They have my undying respect.
