Jon and I work at the same school. I'm a 3rd grade teacher; he's the I.T. Specialist. Which means that any time something doesn't work, he's running around fixing it. The other day I was having serious problems with my computer projector and I couldn't get a hold of him, so I decided to bag the presentation until later and gathered the kids at the back of the room for a story.

Jon magically appeared out in the hall, probably on his way to put out a different fire, so I just yelled, mid-sentence in my book, "Jon, I NEED YOU!"

He stopped, smiled at my dramatics, and then one of my cute little girls stood up and said, "ME TOO! JON, I NEED YOU!" while waving her arms around. She's usually really shy and timid, so everyone stopped and stared at her. Then we all had a good laugh for like 5 minutes straight. It takes a lot for me to laugh until I'm crying, so when I do my kids think it's the best thing since chocolate cake.

I still haven't figured out why Megan needed Jon so much ... but the kids still talk about it and Megan is the new "popular girl" for cracking me up. I love teaching kids!

That is the best story I have heard in a long time. :) Sooooooo funny! It is so nice to be needed, isn't it?

That is funny!! And I think it is sort of cute when a guy shows a soft side, even if it is over a dog being put down.

Haha that's so cute! I have a serious lack of little ones in my life, so I'm jealous of you.
