Me: Sit down (to the kid who was up for the 10th time)
Kid: I can’t miss.
Me: You’re 14; you can sit for 50 minutes.
Kid: But you don’t. You never sit for 50 minutes.
Me: First, I chose a career where I don’t have to sit for 50 minutes at a time. I like standing. And kid, I went to Catholic school. I had to kneel for 50 minutes. Now. SIT.
I smirked at the end of the story that I was telling my mom in the kitchen.
Tornado E: Mama, why did you have to kneel for 50 minutes?
Me: It was a punishment. I talked in church.
Tornado E: Did you tell your student that?
Me: What? No. I’m not an idiot.
Tornado E: Huh.
Huh, in deed…..
