The Weekly Wonderings #124

1. Did you know that eye teeth are called "eye teeth" because they sit directly under the eyes? That makes such total sense and, yet, I never knew that. I know that now only because of that tooth-lens operation done to restore sight.

2. Oh, you knew the origin of the term "eye teeth" but don't know about the operation. Well, ha ha ha on you smarty-pants. Read about it here.

3. I'd give my eye teeth to have a real principal at the elementary school. These two job-sharing, older-than-old, long-retired dipsticks are clearly failures.

4. Following my email to the superintendent Thursday afternoon, I was contacted by the director of human resources for the district.

5. My hopes that I was talking to the HR person because the two were being fired were quickly dashed. She's the "complaint officer" for the district.

9. "We'd been warned about the man in the blue Prius. I'm glad they caught him."

10. That, my friends, is how rumors start. They are two different mo-fos. [SIGH]
