Scene: A student continues to talk over me during instruction.
Me: “J, if you continue to talk over me, I will tell you the ending to Avengers.”
J: “Miss! You wouldn’t!”
Me: “Would I?”
*class gasps and J puts his hand over his mouth*
Me, continuing with my instructions: “Okay. Y’all are on the clock for 15 minutes. I’ll be available if you need me.”
J, removing his hand slowly: “Uh Miss A? I thought you were married.”
Me: “What? Last time I checked I was.”
J, slowly meeting my eyes: “Well you just said you were available...”
Me: “Everyone dies at the end.”
Don’t worry. I told him I was joking... later. Much later.
