Today I held power in my hands. Real, actual, honest to goodness power.
This morning at the level meeting a decision had to be made. The count was four to four. I had not voted. Everyone looked at me. I would be the tie breaker.
I found myself in the unique, and possibly first time ever, position of being able to get exactly what I wanted; of being The One to make a decision that everyone else would have to follow.
And I liked it. I sooooo wanted to hold my sword (Or gel pen. Whatever.) in the air and say "By the power of Greyskull!"
Okay, so it was a relatively inconsequential decision. Whether or not to have classroom parties. And really, who cares? But still. I was the one holding the power. And, oh, did I wield that power. And all listened. And all agreed that my decision was good. And they'll all do what I said. Because they have to. (I think this is what it will feel like when I rule the world.)
Not bad for a Monday morning. Maybe this week won't be so bad.
