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")
You gotta give 'em credit for spunk.
