So when you ask someone in the mob for "a favour," you get the favour... but you owe them a favour. That's how it works. They can cash in at any time, and ask you for anything.
So when one of the Cheerios asked for help to put together something for her Mom for Mother's Day, Saucy explained to her that she'd owe "a favour"... you get the drift.
It's the mob mentality, for cheerleading coaches. All of these little charms that were gathered will mean something to her mother. It came together pretty nicely with a brown and aqua scheme and things are looking pretty good... much better than they looked at about noon today.
By noon hour, a tearful Loopy was in the Principal's office over a matter involving a mean girl and some things that should not have been said about Loopy's physical limitations. Luckily for Loopy, she has some excellent peeps - some are Cheerios, some are not - and they went to bat for her. Sure, they could have handled things with a bit more finesse, but when someone is being bullied, the mob mentality kicks in and fourteen year old girls have a strong sense of what is right and wrong and well, picking on someone who has different abilities is not cool.
Let's just say, that by the end of the evening over here, we not only had one Mother's Day gift wrapped and ready to go, we had discussed what might be some appropriate ways to handle bullies in the future. But handle them they should. Because if you bear witness to a peep being bullied, you simply must stand up to it. By turning a blind eye to bullying, you are an accomplice. The mob today understood that much. Loopy has some fine and well-meaning peeps. For that we are grateful.
Come back on Monday. It's the Fourth Anniversary of this little bloggedy blog blog, Saucy's 8ooth post, and it will be celebrated with a sweet giveaway. Do you remember last year's celebration? This one will appeal to even more of you. Saucy wants to reward her loyal and well-meaning peeps... is that you?
