Why You Shouldn't Choose The Topic of Marriage For a Free-Write

Because during the debate, Girl Student in the front row will get into a fight with her Baby Daddy in the second row. With attitude, she'll keep repeating, "How you look. How you look."

In defense, he'll maintain his mantra, "Can I speak, now?"

Supporting her position of marriage, she'll pull out the "'Cause it say so in the Bible" card.

He'll retort, "Times is changed. You need to be able to take care of yourself."

She'll come back, "It's a union. About sharing."

He'll confess "I'm down with sharing, but I like to gamble. And my money is my money."

The rest of the class will try to simmer the tempers to no avail and you will wish to hell someone else would raise their hand and tell the class they have cancer.

I'm thinking a nice safe topic for your next free-write might be...chocolate versus vanilla? The ICE CREAM FLAVORS!

*sigh* never mind.

As I read these posts, I can't help but think of you as a modern day Michelle Pfeiffer as a hard scrabble substitute teacher in Dangerous Minds.

See, this never happens with one year olds. The worst I have to do is change a diarhea filled diaper.

OK, so how exactly is "How you look" used? Because it sounds kind of cool and tough, and I want to use it on someone, but I don't want to use it wrong . . . ly.

I'm not even sure cancer could distract those two.

I'd install buckets of slime above each student's desk with ropes that go over to the teachers desk and dangle there awaiting a poor choice of words...

I'm with you, I think cancer might have been a better topic, yo. :)

Aw, you've rediscovered the joys of teaching as well ...

Interesting article as for me. I'd like to read a bit more concerning that topic. Thank you for giving that information.

Wow. Maybe you should choose "unicorns" for a topic next time.
