Today in Class: Of Snobbery and Pregnancy

This happened last week, during Guest Post Week, but I figured I'd save it until now. See, the husband, being the wonderful guy he is, decided I needed more of a break than an unplug week. So, he booked a bed and breakfast in the mountains, told me to take three days off work, and holed me up in an ivory tower. Freaking A.

As a side-note relevant to this post: I'm one of the youngest teachers at school, and for a few years now, the kids (and some of the teachers) have had a running bet on when I'll get preggers. Because we live in a small town, and that's what people do: get knocked up. I try to tamp down the rampant speculation, but for some kids, they think nothing is more fascinating than a teacher who is a real person and might have kids.



Me: OK, so, kids, I'm going to be out for a couple of days. Be nice to the substitute.

Kid 1: Where are you going?

Me: My husband's taking me out.

All the Kids: OooOoOoooooooOooooo!
(They are, of course, linking up the fact that the weekend I'm going to be gone is also Valentine's Day weekend...)

Kid 1: She's going out with her husband! And they're gonna get conceited!

Everyone in the Room: *blink*blink*

Kid 2: They're going to conceive, moron.


Me: *too busy laughing to reprimand them for bringing the subject up*

Karen said...

Laughing, laughing, laughing, but still trying to figure out what they were really trying to say.

Freakin' hilarious. I've missed your TIC segments. Glad you had a fun get away. A+ for the hubby.

So funny! I probably would have cocked my head before getting what they were saying. Glad you had a great weekend, Beth.

ROTFLMAO!!!!!

Susan Quinn said...

ZOMG, that's funny! How old are your students? (and kudos to the hubby! They can do pretty good, sometimes, can't they?)

Amy Tate said...

I'm laughing so hard I can't see to type! You need to keep an ongoing record of these comments and publish them someday.

Marcia said...

Funny! And your husband's a keeper, BTW. :)

Jenna said...

*Dies.* That's great. It reminds me of a scene in French class not so long ago...*snort.* I guess we students just love speculating about our teachers' love lives. ;)

Susan, mostly tenth graders, but this was my yearbook class, and the kid in question was actually a senior!!

Corey Schwartz said...

That's actually scary that it came from a senior. I could see my son saying that and he is four!

Your husband sure is a doll.

Elana Johnson said...

ROTFL! Yeah, you idiot. Ha ha ha! Hope you had a great weekend.
