Adult Content

Today's another meeting of the teachers' book club. This month's book is Upon the Green something or other. I don't know. I didn't read it.

Listen to me. I sound like one of my students, but I don't go to these things to talk about books. I go because I need to hear adults talking, not about students, but non-school stuff. I just sit there and soak it up. Oh, don't get me wrong; I'm motivated to go by for the free snacks too, but it's just nice to go an hour without anyone drawing the conclusion, "that's gay."

Can you imagine if adult conversations did mimic our students?

"The wife and I went to Bed, Bath& Beyond this weekend. Those new shower caddies is krunk, yo."

"Yeah, yeah... check this out... they found polyps. That shiznite is whack."

"Your mom is a 403b."

Of course there are more similarities than we would like to admit. Cell phones were constantly going off during the meeting with ridiculous ring tones. But instead of the Ying Yang Twins, you get K.C. and the Sunshine Band.

That's right. I said, "Ying Yang Twins."
