Possibly the funniest thing to ever happen to me here in Michigan happened today. A couple days ago I got a 12-pack of mints from the penguin group, and over the last couple days I had sold a couple tins to people at school.

Anyway, today they had a parent-teacher forum at school, and the first thing to get brought up is "someone selling caffeine pills at school." My mom, after turning bright red, informed them that they were only caffeinated peppermints, but now they're (the school and my parents) want my "drug trade" shut down. Heh.

I'm taking a tin of mints to the principal tomorrow (free of charge, BTW). I guess I'll quiet down sales a little, though. I sort of want to fight this, because there's absolutely no way I could lose, and it's something to do, but I don't know if it's worth it. I just can't wait for the rumor toblow up that I got busted selling drugs. That's worth every bit of it. :)
