For the third time in my adult life (well, fourth, but I don't count student-teaching), I chaperoned a trip to Washington D.C. I actually chose to spend my Fall Break with eighth graders. It must be their inane sense of toilet humor that I enjoy. To make the trip different compared to years past, I brought along my friend the Trip Advisory Llama. Real, live llamas aren't allowed in public places, like Congress, so I thought this little guy would do the trick.
