So, I was experiencing some odd shortness of breath earlier this week, and I stopped at the local Instacare -- and actually got a likable doctor who appeared to be competent!  (I've had a few highly questionable experiences with doctors at this place, and I could see the one doctor I really don't like lurking about in the background.)

Him (as he's running a stethoscope over my chest): So, you're a teacher, huh?  What grade?
Me (smirking, because I know what will follow my answer): Junior high.
Him (pulling back and rolling his eyes): Oh!  You are a SAINT!!

Note: it's always either sainthood or insanity applied to me when a stranger learns what age group I teach.  Always.


  1. Personally, I think it's a little of both. :)

  2. He's right of course. And it helps to be crazy :)
