From the Mouth of Babes
I right love being a school teacher. My kids are the light of my day and I reckon I cherish pretty much every little word that they say. But sometimes those words can be quite the doosies – especially when it comes to the whole question of what’s wrong with Mrs. Walker (that would be me).
I don’t get too many hot flashes, but I was hit by one right in the middle of class yesterday. All of a sudden, I just sort of stopped talking and started fanning myself with a notebook while the sweat came pouring down. And then, one of the kids spoke up, all concerned, and asked if I was about to spontaneously combust! Then, another one told me to make sure I wasn’t standing near anything flammable, or I’d burn down the school!
It was right funny, I tell you. Once the flash passed, I got to give the kids a brief explanation of menopause and hot flashes. I’m not entirely sure they believed me, though!
That’s all for now. Take care, y’all!
