naturally occurring science projects

messy locker.jpg

It is end of the year for those at school so lockers are cleaned out.

Youngest came home with two garbage bags filled with –
 a clown’s nose, a top hat, a left flip flop
a tupperware container with a fuzzy blue sandwhich,
a sopping wet blazer and kilt with mildew on it
(why is it wet and how long has it been in your locker wet – are normal questions right? As in ‘you went to school that day not a splashpark!’)
a camera
a teddy bear
a goldfish in a knotted plastic bag
a beach towel and a snorkle
11 gym shirts
oddly only a few books
I think she will do very well in life

  • Julie
