It is not my intention to start a kerfluffle...but RULES are RULES!
We are having a Christmas door contest at work. Rules say we were allowed to start on Monday, but that nothing is to be put on the door until Wednesday during 5th hour. Of course some scofflaws are hard at it, trying to gain an advantage.
My class took their final on Monday. Then they sketched some plans for the door. I chose the design I thought was cutest and most doable in that amount of time. Today, about a third of the class worked on the door, without working on the door. They got some paper off the big rolls. Trimmed it up to door size. Stretched it out on the floor. Built a snowman. Stuck a carrot nose on him. Affixed snowflakes made by each class member to the paper. They're unique, you know. Each snowflake is different. We rolled up our door design like a giant blue burrito, and stuffed it on the library cart that holds the TV I never use. Voila! Instant door decoration on Wednesday when it's time for hanging.
By 6th hour, word got back that THREE teachers at the other end of the hall, and ONE on the far end of mine, already have portions of their design taped to their doors. Ref whistle, please! Foul! Illegal motion! Gonna have to penalize you. Except I don't dare use the word penalize in front of the students. They giggle, you know. Because they are not such a wordsmith as I.
I am confident justice will prevail. I'm not goin' down without a fight. They shall rue the day they tried to cheat in a contest entered by Val.
