I (Don't) Wanna Be The Minority

Let me start out by saying this is not Me.  This is You.  As per the title, "me, you, and a dog named Boo", the author of this particular post is You.  Not you, but You..... as in me.  Anyway, my name is Brian and I am the husband of THE Dr. Joanna Webb, the creator of this wonderful blog.  I am a full-time teacher and a part-time guest blogger.  If you need me to do a guest appearance on YOUR blog, I am available for a small fee. 

So, my job requires me to be at an elementary school for the first part of my day.  If you've never spent much time in an elementary school, they're usually crawling with women.  Its an understatement to say that I am in the minority.  I'm like a leprechaun riding a unicorn at this school.  I am the only male teacher in the whole building and it stinks!  No, stinks.. Since I am the low man only man on the totem pole I've been given a room that triples as an office, copy room, and BATHROOM!  My desk sits a mere 8 feet from 2 bathrooms.  Thankfully, I am in earshot and noseshot of any noises or smells that might imanate from across the room.  I am constantly made aware of my position at this school on a daily basis when I walk in to my room and the smell of Ly-poop-sol hits me right in the whiffer. 

Thankfully, I do not spend a great deal of time in this room, but on days like today when I have a lot of paperwork to do, I dream about an office with a window (an open window), miles away (or at least more than 10 feet) from the smells and sounds of a toilet.
