Style points count.

I saw that on a t-shirt. Had to Google it. Turns out that style points are make-believe points awarded when you do something difficult but look cool while you do it. You know, "Wow, MASSIVE style points for that catch!" Or, "Great fall, dude...style points!" Or, "Fr. Mark crashed into the Advent wreath again! Style points!"

As we enter into Advent, the season of “Good News”, expectation, and arrival, I remember an early teaching year. It was my tenure year, and I was nervously awaiting a final evaluation from my principal who was expected to arrive in the classroom in a surprise visit on any given day of the school week. The intention was for me to be totally prepared and ready for this. Day after grueling day, I would carefully prepare lesson plans, sharpen my pencils, and be ready for the classroom door to swing open and have my supervisor come in and see what a wonderful teacher I was! Days went by, I kept waiting and waiting. Then the day came when one of the children decided to act inappropriately in the classroom, and after several “discussions” about her behavior, I said, “Okay, if you don’t want to be part of this class, then turn your desk around and look at the door.” Just as she turned her desk around, the door swung open and in entered my supervisor.
