On the first day, I decided to forgo the boring “stand and say your name and then what you did this summer” and opted for the more creative, 2 Truths and a Lie. The name of the game is to try and trick your classmates, blurring the line between the truth and lies about yourself. Although I had been warned by far smarter bystanders that I should brace myself for less than appropriate responses, I was confident that this would work! And work it did, until the last period of the day. One nerdy, yet confident boy that shall go unnamed simply because I haven’t learned his name yet, comes to the front to take his turn:
…AND Ms. Powell makes me feel like I’m living a teenage dream.”
Needless to say I was shocked and totally weirded out, making it impossible to hold any resemblance of a stern teacher face. So I laughed, called him Katy Perry and told him to sit down. It is definitely going to be an interesting year.
I know you hate me baby, but don’t break the needle.
