I have worked in a shipyard, a Georgia country school, a Philadelphia city school, a restaurant, a supper club, a women's apparel shop, a drugstore, a YMCA and a community center; but until now I have never worked before where there are pigeons roosting in my workplace.
You see, it's like this. I teach in the Compton Unified School District. This spring, workmen finally installed a heating unit in my classroom. But alas, they left a square hole of 24 inches in the ceiling. Now, somehow, two pigeons got into the classroom and are having great fun flying about at night leaving their calling cards everywhere and leaving the shades on the ceiling lights at half-mast.
When the pigeons are chased during the daytime to vacate the classrooms, they simply fly through the black ceiling hole to their roost in the rafters. Then their nightly antics are repeated all over again.
So, if it is excitement you seek on your job, for sheer unprecedented, unrelenting, undaunted, unusual and even bizarre excitement, you should come to the Compton Unified School District. You won't be disappointed, for even though you may think that Compton Unified is the pits, you can never, never, never say that it is dull.
