I get roped into telling stories each day at my Son's school. Unicorns

    Someone told someone who told someone and leaked it that I am a preacher man. So now each day I have to give at least one secular story at my boy's school. I am a busy man and this is a burden and I have to be very careful to be PC for 3-6 year olds. So I buck up. You all who read me know I am not a good man, though I try. So today as promised was about that mystical Unicorn.

    Did you know you cannot see a real unicorn with your eyes.... Nope and no sir ree. You got to look with your heart. They are there you just have to look -- not with your eyes. I learned today they are all girls. And they are white with a pink mane. Except some have purple hair. And the story gets told by little girls and little boys. And we flow with that scene. I become,,,, not the story teller but the consensus creator among the most awesome unencumbered minds it the universe. And we build stories from thin air.

    Can you collaborate???

    I believe that life as such is a story in it self. I love the fantasy of unicorns. Making up stories from nothing takes a lot of imagination. I do remember that one of my favorite books now yellow with age is Bible Stories for Children. Now I take my stories and quotes directly from the Bible.

      My favorite is the one where the raped girl has to marry her rapist. Everyone loves that one. The drowning of everyone for not doing what god said is awesome too. sad

        MK I think we could do a little parody comedy. On your thoughts. Kind of like Kindergarten cop only he only tells horrible stories af brimstone and hell fire.

        Mark this is a public school. So we are restricted by law.on that concept. I have a secret -- and talk about Parents love their children and children must love puppy dogs and flowers. So it kind off fits my agenda hihihihi

          I wasn't talking to you Eric. I was talking to the one who said she gets her stories and quotes from the bible. Good to hear that you are no longer allowed to indoctrinate children into your irrational belief system. That is child abuse. I gather you are still allowed to abuse your children at home though. Shame. sad

            (I detect a generation gap issue. we can't win Eric. we just can't win. "Don't trust anyone over 30!"... remember what WE all advised each other? its our karma returning. but, I don't think we were so directly confrontational!)

              Sorry - as usual you are wrong, but I will take that as a compliment. big_smile

              Interesting that you guys keep poking with your scripture stick and then attack anyone who points out that it is nonsense as being "confrontational." No wonder this religion causes so many fights. sad

                Well, you and others who continually insist on interjecting needless negativity and anger are not from our generation... that 's for sure. We were idealistic and we saw the world with rose colored glasses. You keep knocking them off.
                It makes us sad.
                it makes us squint and scrunch up our faces.  We are starting to look like prunes.
                Thanks for nothing.

                  My apologies if you think it is my fault that reality is the way it is. sad

                    - why do you have to focus on it so much?...  to what end?
                    You got something against unicorns?
                    ...and rainbows and elementals bringing love and light to us burdened humans. I love the idea of otherworldly entities. I love the thought of being visited by enlightened aliens. I just don't know why you couldn't let Eric express his joy at being able to work with children and experience the fun one can have with them. Your comments were obviously way out of place. Why do you do it?
