Lip Prints

 I loved this story I heard the other day, about teaching! It reminded me of when the kids were little, you had to wait and watch for any time you could get a teaching moment in. Usually that was around dinner time, or during our One on One Day Out with one of the kids, or as teenagers...most of the wonderful teaching and listening opportunity came at night, way late...then they wanted to tell you about their day! Anyway, we must never give up the opportunity to teach them, and now their kids...our grand babies whenever we can. Then by that time, the only little Lip Prints will be on your cheek,from those little ones!
Good night dear friends!

LIP PRINTS:  A middle school in Oregon was faced with a unique problem.  A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom.  That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.  Finally the principal decided that something had to be done.  She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man.  She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.  To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance guy to clean one of the mirrors.  He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it into the toilet and then cleaned the mirror.  Since then there have been no lip prints on the mirror.  There are teachers, and then there are teachers!
