It was the first week of school, so obviously, it had to be the hottest week of the summer. Luckily, the classroom's air conditioning unit worked perfectly. I had the room set at a comfortable temperature all day, so much so that I was surprised by how hot it was outside.
About half way through the day, the principal made an announcement.
"Teachers, if you are running your air conditioning..."
No. No. Absolutely not. He wouldn't. That's just mean. Too cruel. I won't do it.
"...Make sure that your classroom door and windows all remain closed."
Oh, is that it?
I looked over at the closed classroom door. The windows were too high for me to reach, and I didn't have one of those long pole thingies that can open those, so I was safe there.
He scared me there. I thought he was going to ask us to turn off the a/c.
I mean, it was really, really hot.
