Boyyyyyyy does this take me back

ABC Weekend Specials were much better than their afterschool brethren. They were less about teaching ham-handed lessons and more about great stories, many of which were from some of the best young adult books of the day. The Trouble with Miss Switch was hands-down my favorite. I've always been really into stories where mundane, everyday characters suddenly turn out to be extrordinary, and this is one of my favorites from childhood. Enjoy!

Yeah, so it's been a while since I posted (tons going on, more on that later!!!) but something just happened to me that is absolutely priceless. I'm working at home today, and I turned on the roomba and set him about around the room. He somehow managed to get into a corner and knocked over a paper cutter leaning against the wall. My instant reaction was to yell 'HEY!!!!' at the roomba, like it was one of my cats. Caught myself doing it and laughed myself silly, all alone in this house. Which is for sale, BTW!!!!!!!
