Wordless Wednesday: Neatness Counts

Wordless Wednesday posts are something many bloggers do on Wednesdays (duh!).  The idea behind it is to post a photograph with no words to explain (hence the "wordless" in the title...double duh!).  Occasionally when I am feeling a little less verbose than normal, I play along.  Here's my latest attempt.

I know the title says wordless, but if you know me (which you most likely do if you are reading my blog) ... "wordless" is not exactly in my repertoire.  Perhaps "A Little Less Wordy Wednesday" would be more apropos, but it doesn't have the same catchy ring to it, ya know? Anyway...

As a home school parent, I am sometimes lax on requiring neatness when it comes to assignments from my chicklets.  I expect their work to be legible, but I am pretty lenient.  However, every once in a while I "demand" that their work ... especially their handwriting assignments ... be especially neat.  I mean heaven forbid that someday they have a job at let's say, the local caffiene dealer coffee shop and someone orders a French Vanilla cappucino.  Perhaps they would write the order (which in this case should be FV)  on the cup lid, fill it and hand it over to the customer.  Now if they haven't taken the time to write neatly (as their dear Mama Hen has so patiently taught them), the customer just might get the wrong "message" like I did this morning.

I'm just sayin' ... neatness count sometimes, dontcha agree??

I guess I was laughing a little too loud and had to explain myself.

Glad I brought a "chortle" to your day:)
