We were in the middle of reading through a script when the exciting announcement was made, and then this ensued:
A resounding "YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHH" was heard throughout the halls, and I definitely had to restrain myself cheering with them. Then the dancing began. These are theatre kids, so what do you expect? Oh, but that's not the least of it. They started cheering "Go Paul! - Go Paul! - Go Paul! - Go Paul! - Go Paul!"
"Paul" is that little cowboy statue. I don't know how Paul ended up in my classroom and why the kids felt so compelled to chant his name, but he was there to celebrate, too. I couldn't help but at laugh at them. In fact, it was too funny. I seriously was almost in tears.
It was a fun way to celebrate a snow day. Actually, I don't ever remember having a "snow day" growing up. We just deal with hurricanes here, which is another can of worms.
OMG. I'm sleeping in today, and enjoying a 3-day weekend! Yes, this "snow" day is soooooo perfectly placed. I know it's no "snowpocalypse" but I just felt so left out on all this winter weather crazy-ness! So let me relish for one day?! Kthanks.
I might even start dancing and cheering "Go Paul!" around my living room.
