We went through the paper towels that were on the students supply list
in about two weeks, so then I brought old towel scraps to use. After the
most recent washing, I asked one of my 1st period students to fold the
towels. No problem. Then I started class. There were the usual
distractions and low volumne mutterings that ordinarily go away if I say
anything remotely interesting. This morning things just weren't getting
focused. Students at the first table looked like they were playing
footsie. Finally, I just stopped my futile effort to teach and went
over to the first table. I looked under the table. They weren't playing
footsie - they were kicking around a pair of my underwear that had come
in with the towels! I'm much more careful now - and no they weren't
thong underwear OR black lace, thank you, and thank God. And boy was I
smooth (and a little red in the face) I just scooped up those underwear
and went right on!
