This same incident happened yesterday, and I made the same comment: "Man, I am so awesome. You guys are lucky to have me." Then, in an effort to out-do myself, I added, "I'm so awesome I can barely keep clothes on."
I'm going to let that marinate for a second.
I looked down at my desk and prayed that no student caught what I had just said...but some prayers go unanswered.
"That was a bit of a Freudian slip, wasn't it, Mrs. House?"
I bit my lip and muttered, "Uh huh." (But honestly, two points to a sophomore who knows the concept of Freudian slip. He's no slacker.)
So what had I meant to say? That I was so awesome I could barely contain it. I have no idea how clothes came out of my mouth.
But don't you feel blessed to know I'm an educator?
