The devil wears JC Penney
My face is burned today--which, oddly, is highlighting two symmetrical bumps I have on my forehead (I have a lumpy head--what can I say). No one has ever said anything about it in my 2 years of teaching--but today, I had several students ask what happened to my head and how I got those "knots". The redness must be reflecting light or some crap.
Anyway, today in class, someone else mentioned it again. I explained that no, I didn't bump my head, I just had these 2 lumps and yes, I happened to have one on each side.
And X., the little shit, leans over to his neighbor and stage-whispers,
"I think that is where the horns grow."
Perhaps I should have gotten on him for being disrespectful, but I have to tell you, I howled just as loud as the rest of the class. It was funny enough to start with, and hearing it in his adorable accent just made it even more hilarious. (In all fairness, although I do have a soft spot for him, I WOULD have laughed even if it had come from another student.)
