The other day, while teaching, I told the kids that their next lesson was going to be on sexual assault prevention. I wanted to give the a chance to get mentally prepared to take something seriously (for once in their charmed lives). One kid with scraggly hair, a t shirt advertising a punk band, and a wily look in his eye piped up for the first time ever, "You mean, like, no means no and passed out doesn't mean yes?"
Well, kid, now that you mention it, YES. Hmm. Now what am I going to teach?
Maybe he could give me lessons on being concise. I bet my blog would get more hits.
