GREAT story! Very, very funny!

You could turn their questions into teaching, they can only ask you in french!

But I expect they think you are so cool!

When I was at school one of the english teachers loved the police and I used to order him t and sweat shirts (coz I was in the fan club!) He was the best looking teacher in the scoool and we used to sit and chat about the band for ages (much to the annoyance of the girls with a crush on him!)

However I asked him if he could take me to a concert (I didn't have anyone to go with), but he decided it wouldn't be appropriate..... shame!

Keep us updated LL

This fact never occurred to me until now. The girl in my class that got this whole sequence of events rolling is, of course, a red head. She doesn't wear glasses...yet. But, I'm sure the myopia will kick in soon enough.
Dive, empty and DM, it looks like your legacy will continue as at least one Red Head of the Apocalypse Junior is learning to saddle up in Toronto.
MWAAAHAAHAAAHAAA!

Les enfants sont vraiment perceptif aux sujets comme ça. C'est vraiment encroyabe que tous les kids de 13 ans sont familier avec The Police.

C'est à toi de leur montrer encore plus que "Message" !!!!!!! :wink:

Weeeeeeeelllllll? Madame, How was class today? Did you give up your secret? I can't wait to hear about it.

Bet she didn't. Bet she'll hold out until the last week of school. If they've still got stuff to cover, she doesn't want to give the little buggers ammunition to get her off track. :wink: 8)

seems redheads can't resist our dear Drummer, and I suspect it (at least at one time) was vice versa as well.
:P

There was no school today. It's a long weekend up here in Canada. We're back in class tomorrow. I'll bring my pictures of Ottawa and Buffalo to school tomorrow. If they start bugging me, I'll force them to accomplish a certain amount of work before I tell them anything.

We still have to cover one heavy duty grammar element and a review of the tenses before the end of the year. The pirate story was suppose to be a leaping off point for all of this. I might use Les aventures de Madame à Buffalo instead. I can make up my own grammar exercises.

Madame est allée à Buffalo. Le drapeau est allé à Buffalo.

It's all good.

Holy hell, would that rock. You absolutely MUST share the story if you do indeed write it, llady.

I always loved it when I found out that not only did my teachers have a life, but they were really cool to boot. You could really make a difference in the life of a young person, LL....I recall it's a little lonely being an artistic kid in school sometimes. Let us know how it goes.

Le drapeau a pué un petit peu. :lol:

LLady, can't wait to hear what you taught your pupils.
