More conversations from the trenches

Me: Okay, we're writing our definition for "handbag." "A handbag is a fashion accessory that is a container that holds stuff. It is..." (pauses for students to continue the definition)

Student: ...flammable.


Regarding a student who was using some lotion:

Student: Why does he use lotion?

Me: He has dry skin, like anybody else who uses lotion.

Same Student: Touch my skin; it feels so silky smooth.

Me: No.


  1. re: #1's answer - Yes, they are, esp. if made out of vinyl.

    #2 - good choice on the "not touching skin part".

  2. These are cracking me up.

    And I use lotion.
