In October I blogged about my nightmare school where all hell breaks loose on a regular basis and where a boy bled everywhere on trying to prove that a compass point being poked into one's arm didn't hurt. Well, today, in the same school (no surprises there) a little girl of 7 years cut her bottom lip with the scissors that she was munching on and bled EVERYWHERE. Thankfully there was another adult in the room and she took care of it. It was like vampire blood. It streamed from her lip like she had eaten teacher for lunch. Amazingly she didn't cry, although I nearly did because I was left with the job of clearing the blood up that was left on her desk and the floor. I think the other children learnt a valuable lesson there (well, two...the second being you can't use the board eraser sponge to clear up blood....two seconds later and they would have done, with only nasty consequences for smearing blood all over the blackboard...nice.)
Another wonderful day at school, n'est-ce que pas?!
