At least he doesn't have hairy palms (yet)

Today during my last period, I was conferring with a student when I heard a strange noise. Someone...grunting, was it? "Uh, oh, OOH, uhhhhh..."

When I glanced around to see what was going on, I saw a student with his hand under his desk. Said appendage was moving back and forth rapidly.

I froze, eyes wide and teeth gritted. Seriously? SERIOUSLY I have to deal with this? I've heard rumors, but....

He saw me looking. "My leg won't stop itching," he complained. "It's really annoying!"

I looked again. His hand was clearly on his leg, not....anywhere else.

I had to put my head down on the desk, I laughed so hard. The whole class joined in. I don't think they had any idea why. At least, I hope not.

I had to deal with that once in my classroom. But the kid's hand was NOT on his leg. Oh my! Talk about uncomfortable!

Stylestance: I was SO glad that oh my didn't become an oh NO.

SAS: I was so afraid of that....I so don't want to ever have to have THAT particular conversation with a kid. Or even with an administrator about a kid. Ick ick ick.
