The good Doctor’s birthday is March 2. Our school decided that we should recognize this literary giant by serving green eggs and ham in the cafeteria for lunch. Now, to make green eggs, we learned that you don’t use green dye. You use your colour theory, Sam-I-Am, and mix blue food colouring with the scrambled eggs. It produces a lovely, Seuss shade of green. Unfortunately, many people chose not to eat them in a box, or with a fox, or in the caf. or really anywhere . . . But it was fun.
Moncton High School wanted to appeal to everyone with a dance theme, so we had an “It’s your Birthday Party!” dance. The whole dance was a birthday party with clowns, party hats, noise-makers, tons of balloons and decorations. We had a teacher making balloon sculptures, one doing face painting, and everyone got a free birthday cup-cake. The only thing missing was a magician/card tricks’ booth.
