Awkward

School can be... awkward sometimes.

Exhibit A: students' comments. Students like to provide running commentary about teachers that they like. My students like to know about my personal life, interfere at times, spread rumors, etc.

Me: Hey, SeniorBoy, how are you doing today? Feeling any better?
Senior Boy: Yes, Ms. K, I am. Thanks for asking.
[Senior Boy gives me the once over.]
SB: You look really nice today, Ms. K. You should wear skirts more often.
[Pause]
SB: And I mean that in a totally student-teacher appropriate, non-awkward kind of way.
