not a big pronoun crowd, are we?

Coincidentally, I was teaching pronouns when I wore this t-shirt to school. I thought I was so clever that it just happened to be worn on the right day and I could make a lesson out of my shirt. I am the world’s greatest teacher, I thought.

And then.

My seventh graders thought it said “You, me, ow” and no matter how much I explained it, they didn’t get it and they didn’t think it was clever. There might even have been some eye rolling.

You know that joke that you think is just so funny and then you tell it and all you get is a polite chuckle and not the hearty belly laugh you were expecting?

Ya, that. But with a shirt.

Seventh graders are so lame.

    As a high school librarian, I love getting book-related shirts. I have one that looks like an old stamped library card. I get called a nerd every time I wear it.

    Kids are a tough crowd, man.
