good try

my first period class i subbed for today was a little chaotic...just one of those perfect combonations of specific, difficult kids that make this job so interesting.
at one point, after telling one boy over and over again to sit down, be quiet, etc...i told him i was going to have to write his name down.
in all sincerety and fear, he looked at me and said with a straight face: "miss police, i really like the way your hair looks today."
