It’s amazing how well-behaved and friendly students can be after a long winter break. Though I’d like to think they missed me terribly, it probably had more to do with the fact that I brought in a huge tray of my grandma’s leftover Christmas cookies.
M: “Wait, is that fudge? I never knew I liked fudge until now!”
M: “Can I have another piece? Mine is on the ground.”
Me: “Why is it on the ground?”
M: “I put it in my mouth and then I didn’t like it so I spit it out.”
Me: “These have nuts in them.”
S: “Ms. S, did you know that the last time I ate a nut, my eyes popped out of my head?”
