Comments: Feeling Plucky?

At least he didn't say "Guess what?" Or worse, "If I tell you something, you won't get mad, will you?"

And he had the courtesy to ask for your presence rather than volunteering you and then telling you. Had a child that had a bad habit of doing that.

I remember disecting a frog and putting the back legs on the ends of pencils and making them dance. The boys next to me got sick to the stomach. My lab partner thought it was funny. All in a days work! ;-)

In my house it was always, "Oh, yeah, I have to bring in ___________ to school tomorrow." This announcement was usually made as I was tucking them into bed and I never had on hand what was needed.

I kinda miss those days now.

Up here in the Great White North (cf, last weekend ... never a dull moment), we mainly get Pig pluck.

Seems like only yesterday (but it was really 11 years ago), I assisted with my youngest's disection of heart and lungs. 4-5 kids to each adult. Went well. The lungs were really pink. (None of the pigs smoked.)

Gosh, that would make the sheep's eye disection and shark disection (with my eldest) over 15 years ago. Wow.

Just try to keep in your mind the thought that you're just preparing some meat prior to cooking it for dinner.

I'm probably one of the few students in the history of the U.S. to be sent to the principal's office for random flinging of pyloric caecum in 7th grade Science class. It was a frame job... Nothing random about it! I was aiming for my buddy Rob, but pyloric caecum? Aerodynamic it ain't...

(In case you're curious, it's the goop-filled tubes inside of starfish arms!)
