Yesterday at the faculty meeting, folks complained that the announcements are way too long, and that many, delivered to the whole school, only pertain to a few. The principal promised to think about it.
Thus it is that, today, we have had the following announcements:
“Just a short announcement to those for whom this announcement is, ah, you know, an actual announcement. Six Flags.”
And my favorite thus far. “Just a short announcement. Bluetooth.” Someone, I think it was Mr. North, hollered down the hall, “Can I buy a verb?”
Then there was simply, “Don’t wear black tomorrow.”
And, “Just a short announcement to those to whom this announcement is to you. Stand-by.”
