i deem myself funny. self proclamations are always a little risky. you never know what your audience is going to be thinking - you know along the lines of them finding humor in my stupidity, as well.
one thing that drives me crazy is when kids say "can i get a drink?" or "can i go to the bathroom?" i always say, "i don't know, can you?" then they say that they can, then i say that they can go figure out how to ask me then.
someone usually whispers the correct question & they go in for re approach.
today's response: "can i get a witness?" and yes, i did sorta rap it out. and i got a very confused look. so i rephrased. "can i get a wha-wha?" said kid shakes head. ashamed of the silliness of his teacher. he restates, "may i?" i just nodded. i figured i'd humiliated him enough.
i blame the fact that i'm on: antibiotics, muscle relaxer, and cold medicine. plus acidophilus, so certain places don't start rotting... (that's all i'm going to say about that) my neck is better today. not perfect, but better. and - my cold is worse. suck~
