I was rather irate when the came into class. It wasn't their fault, so I tried not to make a big deal out of it, but it didn't take them very long to notice that something was different. They were pretty curious, but after I assured them that they were not the target of my anger, most of them were satisfied. Brian, however, wanted some further clarification.
Brian: Miss, did someone accuse you of being a pagan?
Brian: Good. Because that would be really insulting!
That made me giggle. Then we had a pretty good class on the Civil War.
