The Scariest Thing Ever I Have Seen

The huge end of school teacher party is winding down (after many hours). A zillion year teaching veteran is retiring so as she leaves, I hug her and wish her well. As our hug breaks and we hold hands for a moment (a perfect time for a piece of advice for me, a mid-career teacher) she looks into my eyes and says...

"Educat, I am having everyone over in July. I have a big screen TV. We are
watching pornos and then going to the titty bars."

I laugh (perhaps in sheer terror) and tell her I will have to pray about that but I am pretty sure I am booked. Is this an omen for this summer? It was a most frightening beginning.

Is that some sort of initiation? Kind of like the Masons or something?

"I'll have to pray about it."

You truly, madly, deeply crack me up.

Run out of that building as fast as you can and don't look back until the doors open in the fall.

And why not go to the party? Maybe she was just joking. Plus, wouldn't they all be surprised to see you there? Tell them it was the free porn that made you go.
