I'm the kind of girl who uses pens to put her hair up and typically has at least one pen tucked behind her ear.
As a teacher, I'm doubly bad about this because I always need pens to sign passes (etc.) and I'm always distracted by a group of rowdy teenagers. What does this mean for me? It means that I'm often walking around class with two pens, one tucked behind each ear, without really realizing it...
It's the latest teaching fashion. That, or I'm trying to grow ant feelers.
I didn't really realize I was doing this until it was pointed out to me by one of my students. You can always count on them to point things like this out!
WHILE DROPPING OFF A MAKE-UP WORK PACKET IN A MATH CLASS...
Ally: Mrs. Frizzle, you look very sexy today in that color green. (Ally thinks everything is sexy. It's her go-to adjective)
Me: Uh, thanks Ally. You look very nice today as well!
Ham (yes, the same one): I love that she's pregnant and you think she looks sexy, Ally. By the way, Mrs. Frizzle, the pens behind each ear look, each going in a different direction, is a great look for you.
Me: Dang! I forgot. Have fun with math, guys! (exit room)
