What the horoscope said:

"You will get news or meet friends today, Amy, from abroad. These things could possibly cheer you all day."

What happened:

During my second period class another teacher walked in with a cop. I glanced at the cop and then at my (admittedly dodgy) class and was about to say, "Okay, officer, which kid are you here for?"

Then I realized he WAS a kid-- or he had been, back in 2003. Goddess bless him--he wanted to come visit, and I probably shattered his eardrums with OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG...

Ayup. Made my day.

And so did this:

Another student decided to give us little Christmas gifts--little hand lotions and such. I accepted, smiled, said thank you, and rubbed lotion into my hands.

And wondered all day about the smell... what is that smell? Why does it turn my stomach? I don't like this smell. What was this smell supposed to be?

So I took a better look at the little bottle. And the distinctive plant on the front of it. And the name of the lotion.

Hempz.

In a country where I can't buy hemp yarn for that cool hat I saw in Knitty a couple of issues ago, this kid just gave a bunch of people hand lotion made from marijuana oil.

I've been laughing my ass off all fucking day.

Who knew? That free horoscope had it pegged!

Glad to hear you got a day of laughter and visit. That is a nice thing to have at this busy time of year.
