first day back at school and i didn't kill myself (just kidding, i really DO love these kids. yeah, even THAT one). this is a good sign.

i won't bore y'all with the details, except this brief conversation between one of my students and me:

kid: hey, ms. banana, happy new year! i really missed you.
me: that so?
kid: uh, huh. you're the only teacher i missed.
me: liar.
kid: no, seriously.
me: you just want an A. well, you can't have one. flattery definitely isn't gonna get you there, neither.
kid: i already have an A, ms. banana.
me: hasn't the bell rung, yet?

In this paranoid world of ours I'm surprised you didn't read more into your student's comments. Are you sure you weren't the last unsuccessful target of a sniper? Check the staffroom asap.

if my kids wanted to kill me, they'd totally have done it by now . . . and they wouldn't need a sniper. i'm a large and accessible target.

but you can never be certain. there are a lot of bushes around my crappy, beat-up trailer that doubles as my classroom.
