Dang Snails...Get a Room!

Here is a conversation (an arguably typical one) that took place at the beginning of fifth period as students entered the classroom:

Brydan: “Oh hey, Mrs. P. I’m so glad fourth period is over! Last period Ms. Tucker made us watch bugs getting it on with each other.”

Tyson (rolling his eyes): “It’s called 'mating rituals.'"

Me: “Well that sounds sort of interesting...."

Brydan: “Yeah, real interesting. You try watching snails making out for twenty minutes. I never thought I’d say this, but I’ll take last week’s pronoun lecture all over again.”

Me: "Gee thanks, Brydan. I'm sincerely flattered."


But seriously, thanks, Brydan...you just gave me today's blog entry!
