This morning, while preparing to share the very exciting extra credit opportunity with my 1st period class, I made the mistake of saying: "I have some really good news for you..."
Then, without warning, a student yelled out: "You're pregnant!!"
Nope. Just chubby.
I said: "No... Not pregnant."
Another student: "You're getting a divorce!'
Nope.... And sad that that falls into the category of "good news" for you.
Just 5 points extra credit for turning in a picture of something demonstrating irony.
Monday with 15 year olds... Never a dull moment!
