Not a Garden Tour #3


Good evening, Kitties! Well, as you can see, it's time for another Not a Garden Tour! Today's tour will take you into the exotic and enticing realm of Faculty Room Mailboxes!

Box #1 is clearly the box of someone very concerned about having a bowl large enough to toss her lunchtime salad. There is even an Apple for the Teacher--ha ha ha! Wonder how old THAT is! It is not accidental that there is no convenient place to place additional mail. English teacher.
Box #2 contains on the right hand side an entire school year's collection of paychecks. Direct deposit has rendered the low-tech check less alluring than once it was, though it seems a bit contemptuous to leave them in that sad little pile. No, we can't has a raise. Spanish teacher.
Box #3 is the territory of a math teacher, whose box contains a little ceramic bird (waaaaaay in the back left corner) and an inexplicable pink paper sunburst.
Box #4 and its unnumbered neighbor are nondescript exemplars of the average state of faculty box messiness, It ensures that Important Messages will sink into the morass of paper until time renders them no longer Important.
Box #5 offers us a blue cereal bowl, a mug, and a tiny marshmallow snowman ornament, vestige of some Christmas past. Physics teacher.
Box #6 offers a classic example of the slalom effect.This teacher's box of tea (firmly tucked into her own mailbox so as not to be shared) has slid perilously to the right. English teacher.
Box #7 might contain beer, but alas does not. Science teacher.
Box #8 is notable for the single Hershey's kiss, placed there a mere 38 days ago on Valentine's Day. Soon the ants will come to carry it away. Webmaster, non-chocolate lover.
Box #9 reveals yet more Christmas decor (it was only three months ago!) and evidence of someone's aspirations for higher education. Art teacher.
Finally, Box #10 is notable only in that it contains another unconsumed pink Kiss, also in its 38th day of tenancy. Dance teacher.

So there you have the photographic evidence. And I'll bet you used to think your lockers were messy!
