To Share or Not to Share

The counselors sent us a bit of news to share with our students. The Shakespeare Fellowship and the Shakespeare Oxford Society will be having their annual conference and special time will be set aside for students on one of the days where they can get in for just fifteen dollars.

For some, multiple responses flip through my head on how my students would react once I shared the news with them. All are a real possibility. None were ideal:

Scenario One: The kids would point and laugh at me. It would be like that nightmare where you show up to school naked. It would be that kind of laughter.

Scenario Two: The thought that they would be interested in such a thing would send them into an intense violent rage. They would bang their heads against walls and tear at their clothes like they were exposed to some sort of extraterrestrial contagion like from a Michael Crichton novel.

Scenario Three: There’s not a rustle from their coma, which was recently brought on by my recent lesson on aphorisms.

After mulling over such options, I think I’ll just post the flyer and forgo reading it. So my kids aren’t big into Shakespeare. It’s no big deal. It’s not like I’m too interested in this generation’s literary classic… Halo 3: ODST. Every time they talk about it, which is always, I do at least one of the three scenarios myself… usually the second one.
