Student: I was away yesterday. Did I miss anything?
Me: No we did not do anything because you were away so we decided not to work.
Student: What time do we return from the trip today?
Me: around 2:45
Student: Do I need to bring my lunch?
Me: If you plan on eating today that would be a good idea
Student: I forgot to take my cough medicine today. Do you have some because I still have a little cough?
Me: No, sorry forgot my extra stash of cough medicine at home today too.
I love my students and often they appreciate my sarcastic answers. In middle school most of these questions are a regular occurrences. I think that is why I love teaching these young adults who are also very funny kids!
