Her: You know what you should do after you retire, you know when you’re 97 years old?
Her: You should start doing some crazy stuff–
Me: I think that’ll happen before I’m 97…
Her: Like writing up kids for breathing and bringing their pencils to class.
Me: (big grin)
Her: You should totally write up [Student who is fastidiously punctual] for being three minutes early. Block him from entering the room and say, “This is totally unacceptable, you need to leave. Class starts at 7:25, not 7:22.”
Me: (laughing) And the next day when he comes in on time, his usual grumpy self, I’ll immediately call security because I just can’t have that much positivity and happiness in one room.
