Have just had most humiliating day of teaching ever.
Couldn't get the TV/VCR/DVD to work, and wasted half an hour of class tinkering with it, while face got sweaty and red.
Finally made student go to his dorm and bring back his DVD player.
When DVD player came back, was so flustered in front of students that I couldn't find the menu button or get it to the right scene. At one point, I was trying to forward through the entire movie using the x2 button.
At one point I said "Thanks for your patience" to the class, and a girl muttered "well, what else would we do?" And I said "I heard that, and you all get F's."
To top it off, am wearing ugly outfit of odd-fitting pale yellow wrap-around cardigan, with grey t-shirt and grey skirt underneath. The cardigan makes my waist look like a big sausage bursting out of its skin.
And my lips hurt real bad. I called Mike to bring me some chapstick and all he could say was "doesn't the school nurse have a ton in her drawer?" But I'm not gonna use her's, you sicko!
And now I am here at my office and I should be grading and planning a lesson but what I think I will do instead is blog and IM Marcy Dibbleblotts.
Then I will go shopping and try to wipe this day off the record books (as Brad Pitt says in "A River Runs Through It.")
Then I will go home and wait on sick husband and needy three-year-old.
