Creativity; the kind I'd rather avoid.

Oh, lovely day. My students are expanding their outlook in a way I'd rather they didn't.

They have a new vocabulary word. The word is Hob knocker; if you look this word up there are several definitions:

A Hob Knocker is a person that is considered cool but in a nerdy geekish kind of way. (Nickelodeon Definition)
Hob Knocker: one who goes around hitting people in their privates. (true English Definition)
Another definition is that one goes around hitting others WITH their privates. (true English Definition)

Student definition: it means someone that walks around, acts cool, does drugs and smokes.


What will they think of next? No, don't answer that. I don't think I want to know.

In other news, I intercepted the following note between two students.

R we going 2 play puppies at morning recess?
do you love me?

OMG! They're only 10 years old! Between the HobKnockers and the puppies and the young love, they don't leave much to chance.

See, these are reasons I know why I could never be a teacher! Volunteering a couple hours a week is plenty for me!!! This is why you get paid the big bucks-Ha!!!
