Well kids, things are definitely back to normal around here. I have given my slacker 1st block class an assignment, and most of them are doing it. Two of them, however, are sitting at the back of the cubicle (okay, so some things will never be normal) talking, laughing, glancing my way to make sure I’m not paying attention to them (Hello? News Flash! I’M NOT DEAF, dumbasses!). This is just like it used to be! I’m so thrilled I could hit them hard with a blunt object, because something else that’s just like it used to be is THEY ARE GETTING ON MY NERVES. They must pass my class to earn a credit toward graduation. They must past the exam in my class to become 10th graders. Of these two boys who haven’t even started their work, one has been in high school for four years and has earned six credits total (you can earn up to eight per year, if you’re wondering); the other is taking 9th grade English for the third time. I’m thinking that all the care in the world on my part isn’t going to make a damn bit of difference on theirs. That’s why I’m talking to YOU instead.
Your assignment, and you’d better do it (see above re: blunt object) is to tell me one or all of the following things about yourselves:
1. What is the most outrageous gift you’d give someone for the holidays if you had unlimited funds?
2. What is the most outrageous gift you’d WANT from someone else?
3. What is your family’s weirdest holiday tradition?
