Confession . . . I read all the Twilight books. Yup. And I even saw the first couple of movies. And shocker, I admit, I liked them. I don't, however, like Kirsten Stewart, she's a little too monotone for me. Okay, A LOT monotone. But still . . . I liked Twilight. Sometimes it's fun to go away into fantasyland for a couple hours. And we have a lot of fantasy to choose from. I haven't watched The Walking Dead, or The Vampire Diaries, but I hear from good sources that they are good. Again . . . fantasy.
It's when the fantasy/reality line gets crossed that should concern us. Case in point. A teacher in Norway (but could have been anywhere). She apparently did not just cross the line, she sprinted across it. She brought a vial of her own blood to her classroom and poured it out on a plate. The students asked if they could touch it, and they put their fingers in it. Then they asked how to get it off their fingers. The teacher demonstrated - - by putting her finger in her mouth. The children followed her example. Yes, true story. I'm not sure what, if anything, she was trying to teach them, but I guess we should be grateful that she wasn't teaching sex education.
Yes, she's been fired AND tested for those icky diseases that can come from drinking a blood cocktail. And the thought comes to mind - - I wonder what she'll put on her resume?
Oh, and by the way, did I mention she teaches, I mean taught, kindergarten?
