It's really exciting when a funny story from my day ties into what I was planning on posting about. I'm on number 15 of my 30 things and they're asking me if I were an animal, what would I be?
I have a new student in my classroom. My introduction to her mother went something like this:
Me: Hi. I'm Stephanie. It's nice to meet you.
Mom: Nice to meet you too. Stephanie, right?
Mom: Ok. That's good to know. Last night I asked *child* what her new teacher's name was. She said "Koala".
Uncanny resemblance, right? After this encounter, I decided to research this a little bit and found some similarities between myself and the koala. Such as...
- The koala is not a bear. Neither am I.
- Much like the koala, I prefer to sleep during the day and
eatparty all night.
- Koalas may look cute and cuddly but have very sharp teeth and claws. Watch out; I bite.
- Koalas have a pear-shaped body to provide stability while sitting in trees. This must also be why I have a big ol' booty.
There you have it. If I were an animal, I would be a koala.
