I worked on the mural for 3 hours - part of it with students, but I continued until I ran out of cement. I put away everything except the items to be washed in my room, and stopped at the office on the way back. I filled out the form saying I was sick last week, then asked the office manager if I could get my pay stub (from yesterday).
The head custodian looked at me - in shorts and shirt encrusted with blue thin-set cement, my hands blue to mid-forearm, my legs and feet with little dots, probably stuff on my face and possibly in my hair - and my face red from the heat.
She looked at me and said, "Next year you should work in the nude, then you won't ruin your clothes."
I bet I'd get more boy students working with me, LOL!
