Don't try this at home, people
This is quite possibly the best shirt ever. I happened across it at the thrift store and knew it would be totally appropriate for the trip. Which is good, because even though I'm an "adult" leader, sometimes I can be really inappropriate. That's just how it is -- I cannot be appropriate ALL the time, because it's too hard to suppress my true nature for very long. So whenever I'd say something not so "adult" the kids would say something like "and THAT'S why you're a professional role model." To which I would reply "You'll notice it does NOT say 'professional GOOD role model.'"
It reminds me of my favorite quote: "If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning." Take it to heart, kids, because there's plenty that I've done (and will most likely continue to do) that will just have to be chalked up in the horrible warning category.
