How to Become a VIP...

You may not have realized it, because I certainly did not, but I'm here to imform you that I have just become aware of my status as a VIP...a celebrity even, maybe! :) haha And it all came to me in the frozen food Wal-Mart.

Ok, so maaaaaybe I'm not a "real" VIP, whatever that is, but I guess all you really need to do to be a "very important person" is feel like one, and if you ever need help with that, becoming a teacher can do the trick! Really - then, once you become a teacher, (or a number of other equally wonderful positions, but I'll use my situation today...) you simply need to go shopping at your local Wal-Mart. Yes, friends, it may not happen on the first trip, but rest assured, if you are persistent enough, you will meet one, or more, of your favorite (and sometimes, not so favorite, but still very loved!) kiddos coming toward you, and usually offering free hugs and smiles! But this is the best and probably most humorous part, the fame has just begun. Because the next time you return to school, the said kiddo will probably want to tell you and everyone in the class, repeatedly that "I saw Miss Whitaker at Wal-Mart!" "Remember when you saw me at Wal-Mart?!" And so it goes...once the fame rubs off, you're sure to have a grocery list long enough to head back and walk the red carpet.....errrr.....frozen food Wal-Mart.

I wish I could post pictures of the 300 kiddos that make me feel like the VIP that I am, but I can't, so instead I'll just have to leave you with this - find out what makes you a VIP...and live it up!

  1. kids always seem so thrilled to see their teachers at walmart. i think that is so sweet. good for you, alicia, for appreciating it; i'm not sure all teachers do.
