Five Routine Minutes: A Cauliflower SheepPosted: May 9, 2013
I help teach a class designed to help police officers have more effective interactions with people who are dealing with mental illnesses. My work in that class is something I really enjoy. I’m proud of the team I work with to put the training on. C.I.T. class weeks are my favorite work weeks.
People from the community bring food in for the students to snack on. It is a nice little extra treat for everyone.
Today, I walked into the class before one of my lecture sections. Someone had brought in a sheep that was made out of cauliflower. It was sitting on the counter at the back of the room.
I can be a picky eater, but most food doesn’t disturb me.
There were a lot of jokes made about the sheep. One of the other instructors piled a bunch of raisins behind the sheep right before I started my talk.
As soon as I started teaching, they placed the cauliflower ram where it was in my line of sight, then left the room. Few things get into your head like a cauliflower sheep does.
Some of you are saying to yourselves, “Oma is making this up. There are no cauliflower sheep.” Yes, there are.
Now it is in your head.
