My brother’s got game

Me: … So what do we know about Brom Bones?

Student A: He don’t got no game!

Me: True, but Katrina Van Tassel doesn’t seem to care about that. So, what do we know about her?

Student B: She’s every kind of fool.

Me: Maybe, but who’s the competition?

Students: The ugly bird-beak man.

Me (chuckling): Yes, Ichabod Crane. She has to choose between a kinda stupid sexy mountain man and a kinda stupid ugly teach–

Student B: My brother could pull you, Miss!

Me: What??

Student B: Yeah, he could pull you and you wouldn’t even know.

Me: What are you talking about?!

Class: (Snickering)

Student B: My brother’s got game, Miss.

Me: So…

Student B: He’d pull you and you’d fall in love and you wouldn’t even know.

Me: Yeah, I don’t think so.

Class: (Louder snickering)

Student B: You don’t believe me? He’s got *game!*, Miss.

Me: Nope. Don’t see it happening.

Student B (getting defensive): Well, I’ll just bring him to school and prove you wrong!

Me: I don’t think that’s a good idea…

Student B (with a ‘told-ya-so’ expression): Yeah, you get it now…

Me (smiling): No, I don’t think security will let him in–

Student B (offended): What?! He ain’t no thug!!

Me (unfazed): I don’t think security will let him in; they’ll ask him “What is your purpose for being here?” and all he’ll have to say is, “To pull Mrs. Crumpett.” And they’ll say, “Yeah… no… but thanks for trying!”

Student B: Yeah, I didn’t think of that…

Me: That’s why they pay me the big bucks!

Student B: Well, never-mind, I don’t want him to break your heart!

Me (big grin, mock offended): What? You think I can’t handle myself now?

Class and Student B: (Laughing)

Me: Alright, let’s move back to the story [we read together for awhile and then].

Student B: Miss, I have a question.

Me: Does it have to do with my personal life, love life, whether I can be pulled?

Student B: No.

Me: Does it have to do with the story?

Student B: Yes. (slight pause) Miss, have you ever had a boyfriend?

Class: (Laughing hard as my forehead thunks to my desk in mock resignation)
