Oops. Did I say that?

Jul 13, 2009

Years ago, before I had my children, I used to teach high school English. In those days, when I would tell stories about my "kids," I didn't mean my biological ones, but rather, the ones I taught all day long.

One day, I was passing back graded papers to my class. I handed one to a student and, when he saw that he had received a 30%, he said, "Damn."

I gave him the evil eye and, without missing a beat he said, " . . . is a very bad word and should never be said in class."

I smiled to myself. Smart kid. Smart.
