If you were to ask me about my Chicago bucket list (which, actually, is non-existent), going to the taping of Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me would be on it (if, again, it existed).
Check that one off!
Though some of my all-time favorites like Paula Poundstone and Tom Bodett were not present, it was a pretty entertaining evening. Listening to the broadcast on NPR today was definitely a deja vu experience. It was also interesting to hear what parts they deleted and what they kept. For example, a whole rant about Jeb Bush's secret guacamole recipe as well as jokes (at length) about the people in Oregon did not make the final cut.

Friday morning was a little rough...but an extra cup of coffee never hurt anyone...
P.S. The 6th graders took a grammar quiz on Friday - it was on appositives. The final prompt (which you can see in the photo below) asked them to create their own sentence using an appositive that was about school. This was, obviously, my favorite response - she even used the appositive correctly!:
