I love my 6th period class. It has the highest number of the most annoying, most air headed, most quick-thinking, and most hilarious kids out of all my classes this year.
I've told them that they are my favorite class because it's the last class of the day. But I like this group for more reasons than that. Reason #1:
Setting: Friday, of the first week of school
Me: ::going on about some math stuff::
Asian Gurl: AHHHHH!!!
Me: ::turns immediately towards her, eyebrows raised, teacher glare on HIGH::
Asian Gurl: There's a bug, Ms. B!
Musician's Son: Ooh! Ooh! Let me get it Ms. B!
Me: Alright, do it quickly and quietly please.
(Entire class silently watches Musician's Son get up, gently scoop up the bug, and walk towards the door)
Musician's Son: Whoops! ::trips on the rug at the door, drops the bug, and steps on it. He stares at the dead bug for half a second, with me and the entire class staring at him. Then, he shrugs and swipes his foot over the bug to scoot it it's carcass out the door::
6th period: ::laughter erupts::
I had tears in my eyes, I was laughing so hard. It was a wonderful moment. And hey, he did do it quickly and quietly - on his part at least.
