We have great students

October 26, 2010

Lloyd, School

Let me say that again (I’m counting the title as the first time): We have great students at Lincoln Lutheran (note the new website). For Homecoming, each class decorates a hallway with a theme picked by the Student Council. I’m not exactly sure what theme they actually chose, but the upshot of it was that the hallways were each decorated like a different movie, and the dance had a red carpet leading into it.

This particular hallway was Pirates of the Caribbean, and they hung a spider right at eye level, right in the middle of the hallway. I noticed this right away, and immediately (a) started a betting pool on how long it would remain hanging there and (b) chose “less than 12 seconds” in the betting pool.

I called him Boris.

I was amazed that it was still there after 1st period started. And again after 2nd period. Then at the end of Tuesday (we didn’t have school Monday). By Friday, I was no longer amazed –just really, really impressed.

    I was just thinking about how Pirates of the Caribbean was getting to be an old movie. I expect it won’t be too long before the upcoming middle school kids don’t know it as well.

    I believe I watched that movie, and have no recollection of spiders in it.

    If I had gone to your school and my locker was by that spider, I would have called in sick the whole week. jibblie

    Oh my gosh…I would so love to do a hallway! That is right up my alley! Way to go LL students!

    Do you have any other pictures of different movies/halls?
