You know what’s harder than the first post, or even starting a blog? The second post, or deciding what to write about after the first. I have been going to blog, and conveniently (or NOT) our internet has been down. Every time I’ve thought about blogging, I knew it would be too short for a post. Rick Reilly, sports writer for ESPN the Magazine, has a project going on called "Rick Reilly Go Fish" (http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/reillygofish). He has many titles for his posts. Examples: Too Short for a Column, Things I Yell at the TV, Excellent Intramural Team Name Ideas, and many others. As most of you know, I’ve been a substitute teacher for the past year and a half. Being in many schools and many classrooms, I’ve heard many statements by students, some of them funny, others absolutely ridiculous, and some repetitive and absolutely annoying. I decided I should have kept an ongoing list a long time ago, because I’ve since forgotten what they have said. So in Rick Reilly fashion, I decided to start a list. I will continue to add to this list as they come along!
So we’ll start with the MOST USED statement, no matter what school I am subbing at (although I will say, it’s mainly the elementary and junior high, occasionally the high school).
As soon as the students walk into class they say, “We have a sub today?”
DO I LOOK LIKE YOU’RE TEACHER?! :)
Of course I never say that, but I think it pretty much every time!
I’ll add more to the list as they come along! If you like sports, go check out some of Rick Reilly’s. He’s hilarious sometimes!
