Children....God's little joke on adults.

Wow, and I thought I was bad when I was giving a college tour in the Village and told all the high school students (and their parents) where all the bars that didn't card were. If I had just inserted the "twig" line, it would have made a much better story. Bravo, sir.

I once told a six-year-old that smoking was cool. I don't think she understood that I was being ironic.

I am so going to hell.

I could get away with saying most of these, because nobody would understand me anyway! Well, except the last one. For some reason most of my students know "SHUT UP," which makes me wonder about their PREVIOUS English teachers.

I HAVE said most of this to students at one time or another, which is why I'm a college professor now instead of a high school teacher. Well, that and the fact I went back to school until they gave me a doctorate and made me leave.

College students are cool. They just laugh it off because they're all stoned.

Gotta cut this short - have to meet with the university attorney about the latest lawsuit against me....
