Whack and Unwrap


Thank you to the boy in my class who brought me this awesome "Whack and Unwrap" orange flavored chocolate. It tasted extra gross. But it's the thought that counts, right?

I should also mention, that said student brought me this "orange" for rolling his eyes at me the day before. When I threatened him with a phone call home, he came to school the next day bearing gifts. Oh the power of a phone call home!

  3. LOL! I want my high-schoolers to do stuff like that! Too cute! Mine just greet my threats with another eye roll! When I carry out my threats, they move on to worse gestures!

  4. haha, that is crazy! I think every teacher should save all the random gifts they get then we should have a contest as to who gets the oddest one!

  10. Yuck! My parents always bought these over the holidays. Everyone would gather around and share it, and I never understood why they liked them so much! Cute story though.

  11. I LOVE THOSE! My Christmas is not complete without one. Then, after Christmas I stock up on them when they go on sale after Christmas (because they are only seasonal...as far as I know). If I was a teacher and my kid gave me a chocolate orange I would so totally give him an "A" ;)

  12. Awww, that's cute! I wish everytime I had to threaten going to someone's boss, they brought me chocolate instead!

  13. Ha ha ha love this!! I used to work with this old man who brought me these all of the time. I'm not really a huge chocolate person so I didn't even attempt to try it! The hubby said they are way gross!!

    Even after tell this man (he was like grandpa age, he needed to retire!) that I was on a diet, etc. He still brought them!! Now I'm wondering if someone was giving them to him and he hated them as well.... hmmmm.... :)

  14. I just started reading your blog. I'm a teacher too. I can't believe he brought you a present after getting in trouble. That's too funny!
