THE LIFE OF THE RIDDLE

THE LIFE OF THE RIDDLE

Thursday, August 27, 2009

First day of school.

I asked my students to introduce themselves like this:

name
what they had for breakfast
the last book they read.

Here are some quotes from the fist day of school:

"And even though I'm a guy I"m not ashamed to say that I'm reading Eclipse for the 6th time."
(that is a twilight book for a three of you Americans who have not yet read twilight.)

And another one....

"I can't remember the last book I read, and in fact I"m not sure I remember how to read anymore."

And my favorite....

"I'm the only boy in my family. My mother and sisters are forcing me to go the Twilight convention. At first I was really mad and didn't want to go but I've decided to make the most of it. I realized how many hot girls would be there."

Yep. Back to the grind.

The last guy is obviously an optimist.

Haha very nice, loved it! And it's totally fine :) Your brain was mush from school starting, it's all good :)

Wow. Sad that there are that many Twilight fans in the world.

That middle one is a crime against nature.

Missy said...

Haha! That is so funny. That last boy is very wise.

I don't know. Regardless of how successfully you could flirt at a Twilight convention, the girls would still trample you without a second thought if you came between them and Robert Pattinson (sorry, I mean Edward). But I guess that's okay, because fanatical devotion to a man who plays an emo vampire and is apparently on a quest for that perfect I-just-woke-up look is kind of a turn-off anyway.
