I don't have much in the way of material today, so I thought I'd leave you with a few things.
Today at school, I had a teacher walk into the office and exclaim, "I can't get on Victoria's Secret website! It's blocked for some reason!"
I replied, "Yes. Because there are a lot of half naked ladies on that site."
Her response was, "Well, I really want to get on it to look at something."
My answer, "You and every teenage boy at this school."
The same teacher came in later complaining about the blocks not being strong enough, and when I asked her why she thought that, she said, "Travis, I'm can't even look at you when I say this, but last year there were (turns her head and whispers) lesbians having sex with dildos, on the computer. It was so awful!"
So yeah... Let's unblock Victoria's Secret.
I was doing things today and came across this pic on the internets.
When I first saw it, I said to myself, "Geez. They can't even get these kids, no matter how...ahem...special, to look at the friggin camera for a picture. That's bad photography right there.
Blind. As in, can't see. As in, I have a pretty good chance of it happening to me by having the diabetes, and I am pretty sure that I increased it quite a bit by posting this. I showed the article to a student, pointed out my opinion, and she laughed. It's comforting knowing I won't be alone when Jesus shakes his head in shame at me.
Seriously though. Camera guy. Can I have a word?
I know that doing this picture was tough. I know that the first time you said "Look up here!" to a blind kid while you were trying to take a picture, you almost died of embarrassment and crawled under a rock for a few days.
However, I just think that you could have done a little bit better job at attention getting. That one poor girl in the middle is staring...ahem...looking...ahem...pointing her head at the floor for goodness sakes! Yell or something! Make a loud noise! Set a firecracker off! Anything, man.
I personally think this man should have his license or whatever taken away for this atrocity. This is shameful. Looking at this picture should not have caused me to chuckle. And it shouldn't have caused YOU to chuckle either. Look at it again. You just chuckled. Now we're all getting the head shake from Jesus because camera boy snapped his fingers a couple times, said, "Say Rainbows!" and snapped the picture before even making sure sponsor lady on the end had all her ducks in a row, and you thought it was kind of funny.
Yeah, yeah. I know I'm a horrible person. I know that this is outrageous. Blah blah blah. I'M NOT MAKING FUN OF THE BLIND KIDS. I can't stress that enough. That's real.
Someone, and I won't say who, but SOMEONE wanted me to put a Braille translation up here.

Today I Make Fun Of Things, And I'm Probably Going To Offend Someone...
I'm a husband, father, son, brother, and friend. I teach English and Literature to the youth of today. I love Jesus and my mother, and I'll gladly introduce you to both. I love photography and writing. Duke basketball keeps me occupied for half the year, and hating Chapel Hill keeps me busy the other half. As you can tell from the title of my blog, I like stories. I'm a big guy with a big voice, trying desperately to be heard by someone before The Lord takes me home. Let's be best friends.
