Toothpick with a Mustache

K: Mr. C, you skinny as hell.
Mr. C: Oh really?
R: He a noodle with clothes on.
K: Ha, a toothpick with a mustache.
Mr. C: That’s funny.
R: You straight fired on his ass.
Mr. C: Yes, and I am so offended. (hint of sarcasm)
K: Nah, we just kidding Mr. C.
Mr. C: Well I take being skinny as a compliment, so it doesn’t bother me.


An email from my principal.
All students remain in classrooms with doors locked and blinds drawn.

The Police Department and the SWAT team are serving a warrant at a neighboring house.  Because we are not aware of the situation and have a report of police with drawn guns, we issued the lockdown alert as a precaution.  AT NO TIME were shots fired.  The Police Department came to the building and notified us that there was no need for lockdown at that our safety was not in jeopardy.

Thank you for your prompt response in helping our students to remain calm for this brief lockdown.
