In there...

Background: I rearranged my classroom yesterday to keep the kids away from the sneaky back corner of mischief as possible.  This left the sneaky back corner wall empty.


Me to students lined up in hallway: You'll notice that the notebook shelf has moved to the wall directly across from the doorway.  DO NOT mess up my shelf, and please continue to keep it neat.  I straightened it for you, so just make sure your notebook goes back in the labeled area for your class.

Enter students.

5 minutes later:

R: * Holding his head and looking around *  Something's missing in here.  I can't quite figure out what it is.  Ms. G., something's missing.

L: under his breath "a brain."

Me: cracking up at the witty, incredibly fast and clever retort to L and the surrounding two students who'd overheard his comment.  You know, L, you really just can't say things like that, even if they are clever.

L: yes ma'am, but I just couldn't help it.  Sometimes, he's just so annoying.

Me: sigh.  Can't win 'em all.  At least it was funny.
