Grading Help

It's that time of the semester for Mom: mid-semester grading hell.

Now we all know that teachers can lose their minds while grading, right? So, it is my duty as a kitty to keep that from happening. What does this mean? Knocking the papers off her desk, stealing her pens to play with, and sitting on anything she is grading. She may complain about it when I do it but we all know she really loves it 'cause it breaks the tedium of grading. And I am saving her sanity in the process.

When I found out she will spend this weekend grading, I got ready.

Bah.

Mom decided to "go green" this year as a new years resolution. So this semester all her students did their papers electronically. This means no papers and no "red pens o' death." How shall I keep her from losing her mind? The computer is too big for me to knock off the desk (and anyways I think Mom would strangle me if I did).

I know: I shall steal her mouse! It's cordless too! And I'll walk all over her keyboard! As yes. Those shall work. Off to do my duty as a loyal kitty.

Oh, and I hear I thought you were going to grade her on how good of a job she was doing taking care of you. Ah well...

Grading is no fun because it means less mom time. Walking over the keyboard and stealing the mouse are both good ideas.
