Ahhh words….! What would we do without them?
I was waiting outside a classroom today while the class who is timetabled in there for period 1 was packing up to go. I’m always there really quickly because my first class in in the room next door, but the year 12 French class is always peculiarly slow to get out. I was outside the door with my class just starting to arrive when their teacher walked out with the last three kids.
“I’m sorry,” he said with his French accent.”They’re always so slow.”
A tall boy, over 6′ and extremely skinny, smiled at me and said, “We’re slow, but majestic.”
