This weekend the highs are supposed to be in the 70′s-80′s. I have never been happier. Oh September, thank you for arriving a saving me from this homicidal heat.
Speaking of which, I had a female student smack a male student today, over and over and over as hard as she could. The male student, holding back his tears and anger (and his fist, THANK GOD) shouted “We kill people in Memphis for that!” GAH! What did I get myself into?
Let’s hope that the break from the heat will bring everybody’s tempers down a bit, beinning with mine. I’m beginning to feel drunk with the power of my classroom and it’s not a flattering look.
