And you thought your school was weird.


I honestly have no concept of what a "normal" school experience should be... so I'm not so sure I should be the glowing representative of normality, though once I did live in a town named Normal which I felt was a little odd in itself.

I do kind of wish I would have been lucky enough to go to a school like Wayside. Wayside is not your typical school, first of all its 30 stories high and a little crooked, if that wouldn't make you paranoid enough. Actually the school is 30 stories high as the builders misread the directions and instead of building 30 classrooms on one floor they put 30 classrooms strait up. This is a lesson in itself for all those guys out there, and little people who will someday grow up to be men, that directions are indeed important and you should at least glance at them!!!

Todd is the new kid at Wayside, and boy do I know how he must feel, though honestly I have never shown up at school to find cows wandering about or being told by my teacher that sleeping in class is encouraged. Though if my Pre Calculus professor is out there somewhere could you please watch Wayside and consider this policy... please. I mean after all the eight hours a week I get to be free of my insane toddler just happens to be my time in class and I would really appreciate at least a occasional nap.

Honestly, if I had watched Wayside with pure ignorance to the book series it was based on I would think very highly of it, its goofy, screams volumes about creativity and being yourself two things I highly value, and has a computer style animation that I actually enjoy. With that said I have read the Wayside Stories books and though yes it is based on the books I wouldn't consider it a remake.

My weirdest friend was a girl that liked to play with snakes. At 7 years old I thought that was weird.

I got my arm stuck between two support beams...I'm not sure if that's weird or just embarrassing!

I had some crazy teachers. One used to talk to the stuffed peguin in the back of the classroom by yelling "stop looking at me peguin!". He even threw a pen at the wall one day yelling "stop looking at me ghost!" He really was just kidding around, though, and it was highly amusing...but he was an interesting one!

The strangest thing I remember is a science teacher who wore a homemade lab coat with deep pockets and keep a bird seed, granola mix- the animals got to crawl in there and sit and eat but then she would stick her hand in there and eat...sorta gross- those animals coulda pooped in her pocket, etc, not healthy etc but she is still alive so who knows. A bit crazy, a great teacher but that was so gross

I remember my 4th grade teacher always used to pick his nose, we called him picker.

elaina said...

I'm a junior high librarian, and I have to say I love the Louis Sachar books this is based on. Anywho! The weirdest thing that ever happened when I was in school was one day in the fourth grade, a possum walked into our classroom, blinked at us, and walked back out. It was too surreal.

soha said...

My weirdest friend was a 6-yar-old girl (when I was also 6) who liked to chase me around the school and tickle me when she caught me!!

LINDALSHOT said...

We had a strange nun who took fizzy "medicine" and we had to watch and tell her when it quit fizzing so she could take it.

judybrittle said...

I have to say that a group of us in 2nd grade were pretty weird. We all took a shortcut home and we all got stuck waist high in mud. We were there for quite awhile. Yep we all were weird that day. Thank you!

Lizzie said...

I went to an school of the arts, so my entire experience was strange! My weirdest teacher, though, was the chemistry teacher, Mr. Manly. He was famous for terrible science jokes and puns, delivered with a straight face and a robotic chuckle.

Thanks for hosting a neat giveaway. :)

Rebecca said...

It sounds bad but my weirdest teacher was my 9th grade Latin teacher, she was terribly hard to understand because she had one of those voice boxes from having throat cancer. Latin was hard enough without that :(

I was in grade school and we were out in the field just finishing up playing baseball. One of the students went to get the baseball and threw it and it hit me center nose. The teacher was very kind and was patting my shoulder. Anyway other girl students did not like him so they reported it to the Principal as him sexually molesting me. He got fired and I never felt right about that. Those students were wrong about doing that.

I used to try to make the kids eat rocks during recess in 5th grade. Weird, I know. I LOVED these books and still have them - had no idea there was a movie!

My weirdest teacher had a handlebar mustache that he would twirl around and around while he talked about social studies. tinawittmer(at)yahoo(dot)com

Becca said...

I had an English teacher in 7th grade who had no control over his classes. He'd walk around the room with a ruler and use it to loudly smack the desks of student who were talking, sleeping, etc. One day he inadvertantly hit a friend of mine on her fingers.

anyone that was a teen in the 80's will get this - younger one's may not....

In high school our Gym teacher (back then it was called Gym class, not PE) made us do aerobics. He would put a TV in the middle of the room, play taped shows of "the 20 minute workout" and then sit and watch us the entire time.

Very creepy!

Cuddle Cottage said...

I had a really weird chemistry teacher, she was about 7 feet tall with a booming voice, and she loved to walk up behind her students and scare the daylights out of them. I never understood that . . .

I really didn't have a weird teacher or anything strange happen to me while I was in school, however my daughter has read the Wayside School books and LOVED them. She would be ecstatic if we'd win a copy of the dvd.

Staci said...

My weirdist "friend" in school was this girl who followed me around all day in 2nd grade. When I refused to talk to her (mean I know) she made her mom call my mom. The next day she showed up telling me I had to be her friend or I'd be in trouble.

My son loves Wayside. Thanks for the giveaway!

The weirdest thing I can remember is a little girl who brought a bucket of bugs to school and she had named all of them after the kids and teacher in our class. I guess it's not that weird for a child to collect bugs though.

cpullum said...

Okay I was in kindergarten and wanted to ride the bus home even though I lived with in the walking distance. So I got on the school bus and after all the kids were dropped off the bus driver said where do you live? I said right by the school and the bus driver took me back to the school were my family was looking for me and the school officials. I was suppose to walk home!

I went to a school prom with a girl who did not want to dance, we sat at the table all night.

denyse said...

My weirdest friend was SHORT in HS and she always wanted to pick fights to prove she was tough. I'm still friends w/ her today (after over 20 years). She doesn't pick fighhts anymore!

Jinxy and Me said...

This wasn't until high school, but we had a teacher who hid in the classroom closet as we were all coming into class on the first day of the semester. Once the bell rang, she jumped out and yelled "Shakespeare!". She was more than a little odd.

Mrs Boscomb my biology teacher was weird. This was in high school. She would tell all of us to put our heads on our desks and meditate. garrettsambo@aol.com

I had a weird science teacher one year. If you fell asleep during one of his boring videos he would take a dropper and put water in your ear. Thankfully, that never happened to me.

Thanks for the giveaway.

My weirdest teacher was my high school English teacher who would spend most of the class time period talking about what chimichanga he had for lunch that day!

Heather said...

I was a non-Catholic in a Catholic school. I was in Kindergarten at age 4 and was taught by a Russian nun. One day, I did the grown-up thing of sticking my huge pencil behind my ear...and promptly forgot about it. When it was time to do our math work, I kept borrowing my seat mate's pencil. Well, that earned me a swat across the knuckles with a ruler, and on the way back to my seat, I found my pencil. Why couldn't someone tell me my big, huge pencil was sticking out the side of my head? Hello?!

rockandtiff2002@aol.com said...

I was so wierd. When I was in 6th I wore my pajamas to school, because I thought they were cool. I found out I wasn't allowed to wear those to school, and I got teased really bad for wearing them.
