I was just thinking about some of my students from the past year, and I remembered a funny incident that happened in class. Gordan was the tallest boy in the class, very smart, and had a quirky personality to go along with his observant nature. One day during class, I apparently bent over to pick up something from the floor. I don't even remember what it was, but I do recall that I was wearing a pair of "below the waist" pants. A little later during our silent reading time, Griffin came up to me and asked if he could speak to me in private. I could see that he had something very serious to say from the look on his face. I took him aside and he said, "Uh, Uh, Mrs. S., um, well, um, when you bent down I saw your, uh, uh, your underwear." I said, "Oh, well thank you for telling me. I'll be more careful next time." Then he looks at me in a weird way, and after a few seconds, he says, "Well, that's okay. I'm going to try to forget it."
I had to hold in the laughter that was inside me at his remark! I guess it was such a hideous sight that he was going to try to erase the whole thing from his memory! ha! ha! It really gave us a good laugh when I told my teammates about it at lunch.
