Some Things Never Change
One of the most amusing things about teaching middle school is the constant marriage proposals and date invitations I get from my boys. Today was the first day back after vacation, and within minutes of walking out of my office, the barrage began.
Student 1: Teacher! When we together date?
Me: Sorry, it's impossible
Student 1: I am so angry! My heart is devil.
Student 2: Teacher! Marry me!
Student: Teacher very pretty.
Me: Sorry, I can't.
Student 3: Mother fucker!
He suddenly noticed I was there, and after looking scared for a moment, put his arm around his friend and, as they walked off down the hall, continued to call out "Mother friend! Mother friend!"
Student 4: Teacher! Please marry me.
Me: I can't. You are too young.
Student 4: No, no, not young. Please.
Me: Okay, fine. When?
Student 4: Tomorrow.
Me: Awesome. Where?
Student 4: The school!
Me: Great! See you tomorrow!
Student 2: Teacher! Please! Me too!
Student 2: Okay!!
Me: Where is the ring?
Student: I will bring tomorrow.
And that's the story of how I gained 2 younger husbands.
