Quite the class opener

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

First day back from mid-term vacation.  I ask my Irish Drama class how their break went.  "Well," said a student brightly, "I'm no longer a 22-year-old virgin!".

I blinked at her with roughly the expression my cat used to get when he jumped into the bathtub and found the shower was still on.

She let the other shoe drop: "I'm now a 23-year-old virgin!!!".  This may be the only time in my teaching career that I have been left entirely without words.
