Dnag zipper.

January 16, 2009


I arrived at work a bit late due to laziness and snow shoveling, so I only had about fifteen minutes to get my act together before it was time to meet with the kiddos.

Do you know how long it takes to put the split zipper on your coat back together?  While you’re baking in the warm classroom? And you’re kicking yourself for not coming earlier?  Well, 10 minutes to re-assemble enough length so you can get out of the coat, and five to finish it up.

It’s the zipper on the right.  The other is my secret pocket.

In other news, I have packages to take to the post office, a book to buy, some errands to run, then a long, long nap.  What’s in store for your Saturday?

    Rrrgh… dnag zippers! Now… why did you have to fix it before they came?

    I figured Karla would have beat me to the first comment… I got here only because Susana is swimming in a meet this morning. No joke, she has to be in the water at 6:30, and our friends are picking us up at 5:35. Good thing I’m a morning person… too bad Susana isn’t.

      I’m guessing it came apart while she had it on…and it had to be put back together so she could get her coat off without some gymnastics move on her part…

        Yeah. It’s easier to do stressful work without a dozen little faces gathered around saying, “What are you doing? What are you doing? Why are you doing that? What are you doing?” Plus, come heck or high water, we would be going OUTSIDE later that day, and I didn’t want it to happen again if I only fixed it partway. (We’ve been trapped inside for the better part of a week due to the weather.)

    You should have just stapled it together. My middle schoolers have field-tested that method of clothing repair again and again.

    HAHAHA! I laughed out loud when I read “to get out of the coat! That’s laughing with you, not at you, ’cause I’ve been there myself. 10 minutes, working alone is a good time!

    I plan to take down my Christmas decorations today…or at least come up with some very good reasons on why I couldn’t have possibly achieved that today.
