Naked skeleton crew working in a museum

Thursday, September 3, 2009
Ha - got you - I know what you are thinking. Well this needs a paradigm shift,
I know I had one recently. So if you want to find out what the story is behind the naked skeleton crew - you will need to read all of this entry or it will not make much sense.

You see I work in a local church office part time and this dear old soul recently gave me a print out of a lovely story called "The 'Middle Wife' by an Anonymous 2nd grade teacher?" ( posted in the "my comments" section - check this story out - its good for a laugh!!)
Anyhow, said 80 year old is a very modern woman - has a cellphone and uses it more then some 40 year olds, blogs away and well is just generally computer savvy. Anyhow - I decided it was to long a story to type up so googled it and found it first up - amongst various websites - including one called "" It has jokes and articles and all sorts of stuff on it - some well known - like the one ----> "Are Computers male or female" See there went my paradigm shift!!

Anyhow - I know you are dying to find out about the naked skeleton crew working in the museum. Just to say thats the sort of prank we would definitely have played in our youth and given the right environment still would do so - just for a laugh. Brings back memories of my cousin pretending to be the police and using a flash camera to indicate a speed trap outside his house . . .
hmmm I transgress - anyhow here for all of you who were so patient, here is the clip
enjoy . . .

oh and the other lovely thing to see is this clip - makes u appreciate the effort and - assuming a clear starry night do some star gazing . . .

Funny how kids interpret the world. The 'Middle Wife' by an
Anonymous 2nd grade teacher?

I've been teaching now for about fifteen years. I have two kids myself, but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade classroom a few years back. When I was a kid, I l... I've been teaching now for about fifteen years. I have two kids myself, but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade classroom a few years back.

When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I always have a few sessions with my students. It helps them get over shyness and usually, show-and-tell is pretty tame. Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that. And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them. If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they're welcome.

Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater.

She holds up a snapshot of an infant. 'This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'm going to tell you about his birthday.'

'First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a seed in my Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine months through an umbrella cord.'

She's standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I'm trying not to laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her in amazement.

'Then, about two Saturday s ago, my Mom starts saying and going, 'Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!' Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. 'She walked around the house for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!' (Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.)

'My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she doesn't have a sign on the car like the Domino's man. They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this.' (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)

'And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!' (This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming water flowing away. It was too much!)

'Then the middle wife starts saying 'push, push,' and 'breathe, breathe. They started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a sudden, out comes my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom's play-center, (placenta) so there must be a lot of toys inside there. When he got out, the middle wife spanked him for crawling up in there..'

Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat. I'm sure I applauded the loudest.. Ever since then, when it's show-and-tell day, I bring my camcorder, just in case another 'Middle Wife' comes along.
