On one of the days I was out sick (see Anaphylaxis Adventures) I got a note from the sub that two of my kids wrote nonsense for homework.  I decided to take them to task for this in our next class.

Me: Tell me about your homework last week?
Student: My homework was terrible!

Good old fashioned honesty.  That's what I like to hear.      

Yesterday, we were discussing emergencies in class yesterday and I asked if anyone had ever called 119 (a topic on which I feel myself to be an expert) A few students sheepishly raised their hands.

Me: Why did you call 119?
Student: Because it is funny.
Me: Ah.  What is that called? (looking for "a prank call") 
Student: Terrible!

You gotta give 'em credit for spunk.
