Knockin’ back a few

Speaking of adult beverages…

Last year, I had a guest speaker present to one of my classes.  He was awesome!  The kids were engaged, participating, and asking questions.  Near the end of his presentation, he commented on how he didn’t know how teachers stayed sane.  “My mother was a teacher, I don’t know how she did it without being drunk all the time.  I bet even Mrs. Crumpett goes home in the evening and knocks back a few beers.”

A few kids snickered, but (thankfully!) most weren’t paying attention since he’d gotten out his gear and uniform for them to look at and touch.  Later, I thanked him for his time and said, “I can neither confirm nor deny the veracity of your statement.”  He chuckled.
