Sincerely 'Fro Me to You-The Nose Knows

*UPDATE*  Our Flashback Atari Winner is Land of Lovings (#7) on Mr. Linky.  (Email me your address and I'll get it in the mail to you!) Thanks everyone for playing along.  And if you are really bummed, visit www.consoleclassix.com to play all the old Atari games.  My hubby's been playing Pitfall for hours.  Thanks to reader Rachel who told us about it.  Her hubby created it!

I'm so excited about this week's Sincerely 'Fro Me to You Carnival.  To participate, please check out the guidelines here.  

This week, I'm offering an awesome giveaway just to the Linky participants.  I will randomly draw one participant who links up to win a . . . . Flashback Atari! (Someone decided to remake these and sell them, again! And I bought one to giveaway!) It's the game console, two controllers and about 40 games. 

Did you just have a flashback? 

I hope so.  I sure did when I stumbled upon this blast from the past game system.  (I had to hide it from my hubby and convince him he really liked our Wii better).

Seriously.

So, in honor of my hubby's great love for Atari, the beginning of video game greatness, this post is sincerely 'fro me about him, m'kay?

My hubby told me this story the other day.  Something our second grade daughter said triggered the memory.  It's probably the single most hilarious story he has ever told me and definitely the grossest.  
 

Ain't he cute?  

So, prepare yourself. Do not sip your morning coffee while reading this, the spewing will ruin your laptop.  You've been warned.

When my hubby was in the second grade, his class lined up for a bathroom break.  The boys were lined up on one side of the hall, the girls on the other.

One of the girls came running out of the bathroom, yelling the teacher's name, saying, "Somebody wrote *Sara's name on the bathroom wall . . . with Doo Doo!"

As the boys stood along the wall, in shock, the teacher went into the bathroom and confirmed the unique grafitti.  She asked, "Who did this?"

No one said a word.

She returned all the students to the classroom and asked each girl to step out into the hall with her, one at a time.

At this point in my hubby's story, I am sitting on the edge of my seat.  "What'd she do?" I begged to know.  I, mean, I'm totally grossed out, just like you are, right now, but I had to know.

[This where you make the choice to continue reading or go ahead and link up your post.  Trust me, stay, it's worth it.]

Do you know what that teacher did?  In my opinion, she should have won Teacher of the Year or been fired.  I can't  decide which one.

She smelled each of their hands until she found the culprit.

Oh, yes, she did.

Because even with soap and water, some smells linger.

That was one smart and courageous teacher, don't ya think?

*Leslie was sent to the principal's office.


*names have been changed because, OMG my hubby's 20 year reunion is next year!

I will be closing down Mr. Linky late Wednesday night.  I'll draw a winner after that and announce it.

OMG! The years of my life wasted on Pac Man, Space Invaders & Frogger!! :D

For your daily dose of vintage goodness & a bit of silliness, stop by Confessions of an Apron Queen, the home of Vintage Thingies Thursdays.

PS *My* hands don't smell like poo!

The Fritz Facts said...

Oh how I miss pac-man! We pick movie theaters by which one has pac-man!

That is the funniest and nastiest thing I have heard...wow

Valarie said...

OMG that was one brave teacher. I don't believe I could have done that.

I so loved our Atari. I can remember when the games would'nt work and you would pull them out and blow the dust out of them. Then slam them back into the game and then it would start.

We had this one game called Kaboom and you would have to catch these bombs that the robber was dropping on you. They would go faster and faster, until I think we were hypnotized by the screen. Oh it was so fun. :o)

P.S. He loves you... said...

EWHHHH!

Now can I please have me some PAC-MAN!!!

Dawn;0)

Blue Castle said...

Oh WOW. I hope that teacher won the Teacher of the Year award. That's one dedicated teacher. Ewww.

Bethany said...

That is one crazy story. I am a teacher and I can promise you, I would NOT have been sniffing hands! Ewwwwww!

I accidently linked to my blog and not my actual post. Would you like me to redo the link? I didn't see a way to edit...

Rachel said...

I think that teacher must have been a parent, because I just can't see a single woman having the guts to do that ;)

And don't deprive your sweet hubby of his Atari nostalgia! Just send him over to www.ConsoleClassix.com and he can play all those games on the computer for free! My husband started that site/business out of a nostalgic love for console games and so now there's no reason for our husbands to suffer any longer ;)

jennifer said...

Didn't she have, like, an AID or something, that could have done the smelling for her?

You just have NO IDEA how this post got to me! The worst thing someone could say to me is "Here. Smell this." I don't smell milk to see if it is questionable. When in doubt throw it out. I DO NOT smell test things.

This was hysterical.

You could not pay me enough. That seems like a job you pass right on to the principal to me.

Funny story.

Kristen M. said...

My husband still talks about his original Atari which he won from his dentist! It's way to early for me to think of a good story but I'll be back!

Nicole@ApronStringsAflutter said...

THAT is the best story...Funny! I have to share it with my boys, who think anything to do with poo is just so funny. ??????

Happy Mommy said...

First I love Pac Man! Hope I win!

Totally gross! Why in the world would someone write with their own poop? Kids are crazy! And you know poor *Leslie* has had to live with the shame her whole life. The occasionally "remember when you wrote on the bathroom wall with poop"....
I'm so glad I home school, I can hid all the crazy things my children do and spare them the shame.

marky said...

That is so unbelievably gross..and yet amusing!
As for atari..whoa doggie..what fun memories!

THopgood said...

I'm glad the story didn't end with your husband being the culprit! LOL!
Great story!
So, are Breakout and Space Invaders included in the Atari Set...LOL...talk about a flash back! I used to sit in front of our Atari playing those games for hours on end.

cajungal01 said...

WOW! Good thinkin' for the teacher!
:0)

Janel said...

Oh, fun contest! We had one and it broke - I miss it!

Meritt said...

OMGosh I soooo did not see the end of that story coming!!!! LOL.

Thanks for the morning smile (with my coffee!)

PS: Atari? I TOTALLY kicked butt back in the day. ;)

Jamie - RoseCottage said...

I worked as a preschool teacher for a while, and let me tell you, there is NO WAY I would have been sniffing hands!!! Bless that teacher's heart!

Twice Blessed said...

I say teacher of the year award! I love hearing stories like that..cracks me up. And yes, he's so cute!

mannequin said...

Oh, I do so hope I got in under the wire!! My child can quote every single game console with stats and maker, etc...This console is on his ta die for list.
I shall now begin my internet groveling.

KD-Pie said...

Two things:

1. EWWWW -- Teachers are not paid enough

2. ATARI Rocks My Socks...Frogger here I come!

Kelly's Rants and Raves said...

Oh, that is absolutely disgusting!!! I cannot believe she did that!! I remember Pitfall with it's primitive stick guy dodging logs and swing over animated gators! Have a great day!

Bahama Shores Mama: said...

Enquiring minds need to know a few things.

Did your husband tell the story as well as you did, or did he keep laughing before he came to the end?

So now I need to know what your second grader said that "triggered" this memory!

And why did LESLIE write SARA's name? Was LESLIE a mean girl? Was SARA a bully?
Will they go on that TV show High School Reunion and make up?

Do you think I can win the ATARI and get bonus points for Father's Day? Yeah, me too!

bunchofbull-ers! said...

Ugh, gross!
I do the smell test on my kids hands to be sure they washed. Yeah, it's always nice when they come & cram their hand right into my face & I DON'T SMELL FRESH SOAP. Excuse me why I go wash my face. ;O)

Kristine said...

OMG!!! Smelling nasty hands is NOT something I would do!!! LOL!!!;-)
Maybe something for Fear Factor!LOL!!!
Atari...blast from the past for sure!!! all my friends had those...We had it's predesesor "Coleco Vision". And before that..was a (radio shack??) platform with "square block" tennis, bowling, break-out and pong. Things sure have changed!! NOt sure it's for the better!!! ;-D

Tammy said...

What a most hilarious story!! And that teacher truly deserved "Teacher of the Year".

WOW an Atari. Yes, that brings back the fact that I never could have one of those!

Kelly's Rants and Raves said...

Okay, so I misunderstood the whole giveaway thing. I thought that I could just sign the linky thing and be registered!!! Anyway I am fixing it right now and will have a flash back up in a second. The pic I have up right now was just taken this last weekend! Feel free to disqualify me!!

Muthering Heights said...

That's TOO funny! That teacher is awesome, way to scare the rest of the kids into acting properly!

Gotta GROW with it said...

oh man i wanna win! and not for my kids...for me. talk about memory lane with ATARI! great giveaway.

the poop story. the teacher was no doubt a mommy herself. very brave of her. what in the world makes a child think to do that? i would have totally guessed it was a BOY.

lori said...

Oh man....what a WISE woman she was!!
I was hanging on...I just KNEW it was your husband:)

My dad came home one afternoon with PONG...we thought we'd hit the jackpot...beep...beep..beep...beep.beepbeepbeep..

I just LAUGHED OUTLOUD...now I'm scrolling down...my hubby asks himself WHEN his summer break starts too!!

Down I go!!
have a great one Kristen!!
you hoot you!~

Suzie said...

Oh NO she didnt! Thats too funny and sort of gross

Threeundertwo said...

Hilarious!

We have the Atari flashback. I got it for my husband a year or two ago. He LOVES it! I love hearing his confessions about how much of his youth was spent on particular games.

Our Crooked Tree said...

That teacher deserves a raise!

Jennie said...

Oh. My. God. That teacher deserves a prize. BTW, exactly why I left teaching. So I didn't have to deal with that sh....erm, poop.

Kristen M. said...

I couldn't come up with a story to top yours but I did find a picture from the past to post. Thanks for hosting such a fun carnival.

It All Started With a Kiss said...

That teacher must have been a mother. Only a MOM would've had the sense/courage to do that!

TJ said...

That was great! I would have smelled the hands too, but poo is kind of my life right now, since we are attempting to get our boy potty trained.

We grew up on Atari too! My dad bought one during the short time he and my mom were separated. My brother and I loved going to visit my dad!

Becoming Me said...

That is hysterical!

Lidian said...

That is some story! I - just don't have anything to say...am glad I was not that teacher, for one thing.

Won't you be giggling a little at that reunion, seeing the culprit all grown up? :)

Cathy/ Mommy Motivation said...

hehe, I knew it! I was thinking that was really respectful of her to take them to the hall ALONE to sniff. HOwever... the sniffing.... hmmm. I have to confess, I just wash ALL the fingers.

franticallysimple said...

She smelled for it! Gag. Teachers really are underpaid...

Neurotically Yours: said...

That is one brave teacher! I wonder how many times she has shared that story???

Ok, Where Was I? said...

So, what happened next? I mean, I never once thought of doing that as a kid, even to the mean girls. So this girl either had some issues or some balls. Or both. What else did she do through school?

Yes, just the picture of Atari gave me flashbacks. We used to give a spare controller to my youngest brother and tell him he could be the ghosts on PacMan.

(I know I'm supposed to link the actual post, but that doesn't seem to work for some reason, so I just have to link to my blog, which is wrong and annoying, I know.)

Darla said...

Oh that is TOOOOO GOOOODDDD!!!!

Still speechless...

womaninawindow said...

Pure genius (and weird fetish!)

Crayl said...

I just got home from our trip, AND I AM TOO LATE TO POST!? AHHH! Dang it, I wanted to win that Atari!
:)

Becky said...

I need my hand sanitizer now.

I will never look at teachers the same way again! ;)

LOL

His Girl said...

OH THE TEARS.... SO FUNNY!

That is IT! *pushes 'sub with bloglines button*

The Girl Next Door said...

OK So I am somewhat new to blogging and totally blogging challenged. I read all about Mr Linky (Thanks for explaining and providing links - I've run into him before but didn't know what to do!) and then tried to fix my link but just added another.
Sigh.
Anyway, love your blog! SOrry for the mess...

Well Behaved Krissy said...

OMG that is HiLARIOUS AND TOTALLY TOTALLY TOTALLy RESOURCEFUL. This teacher rocks the planet. Great job woman!
