Me (talking about the book we’re reading): OK class, so do you think everyone knows Eric likes Jody?
Class (looking at me like, why should they?): Dunno, Miss.
Me: Well, when I was in school, that stuff got around. If you liked someone then pretty soon everyone knew.
Class: No one kept secrets?
Me (with a small smile): Well, I did go to school back in the dark ages, 150 years ago. Things might be different now?
Student: 150 years ago?
Me (with a big grin): Yeah, I’m looking pretty good for my age!
Student: Miss, you are one old cougar.
Class: (loud, slightly awkward laughter)
Me (after rolling my eyes): Oh boy do I love teaching…
