Nailed it - How to make an impression on the first day of school

Before you get your pens out to take notes from someone always so full of good advice and fine examples....

I am referring to a poor impression.  Some would go so far as to say a bad impression.

School started on Monday, and I controlled my emotions and limited myself to one sneaky "WOOHOO!" and high five with a friend at the school gate on my way out.

A new year means a new teacher, new classmates, new parents.

All people you'd want to make a decent first impression with, right?

And I did, I mean I really wanted to make a good impression.  At least to give myself a fighting chance to appear normal, mature and maternal...before my inner immature 14 year old skater dude comes to the fore and I find myself unable to control the odd muttered "shed word" on school grounds, and frequent references to wine o'clock.

I dressed in fresh clothes.  I brushed (teeth and hair).  I arrived on time.

Everything was set for making a good first impression.

School supplies had been packed symmetrically into boxes, all labelled and ready to go.

How could I possibly stuff it up?

Very easily.



By showing up with the school supplies in MULTIPLE BOXES FROM DAN MURPHY'S - BULK DISCOUNT BOOZE WAREHOUSE.



All featuring your name and address on the home delivery name and shame label.


Nailed it.

  2. Can't believe I missed this! GOLD - a woman after my own heart! Maybe slightly better than vodka or goon boxes?

    1. Just between you and me - I made sure the receipt wasn't left in the box too. Lest they know what/how much I had purchased. Ahem goon boxes.
