You know that feeling when you can’t laugh at something, but you want to laugh. Then that makes it even more funny?
This was me today.
One of my students read Friday Night Lights a Town a Team a Dream. I live under a rock and I have neither read the book or watched the tv show.
I had no idea the main character nickname was Boobie.
It took me by surprise when in the interview he kept saying boobie.
I thought that he was mispronuncing Bobbie.
I have a really good relationship with this student. I think he is a great kid, but I could see him mispronunce a name.
I starting laughing interally.
My abs were contracting, my face was red, and a single tear fell from my face.
My silent, yet very clear laughter, took down the whole class.
The infection started.
Student had to put their face down to hold in their laughter.
As soon as the interview was over, the classroom exploded.
A good minute of laughter and my student let me know that Boobie was his nickname. His real name was James.
Sometimes, it is nice to laugh as a class. 🙂
