Rainy Day Games
Friday. 6th period. The tennis team.
They were supposed to have practice, but it had been wet all day (not raining hard enough to need an umbrella, but constant enough that everything was soaked), so I wasn't shocked when they all descended upon the teacher's classroom (as opposed to the tennis courts).
"Let's play Never Have I Ever."
These sorts of days, when I'm covering a sport and we're hanging out, they pretty much can do whatever. I do object to things like prank calls. But card games, on their phones, eating, just sitting around and talking, or doing homework are all fair game.
So, one group in the middle of the room played Never Have I Ever. (If you checked out the link and read the rules, they used the "fingers variation".) And they played dirty...
"Never have I ever been black and over 6 feet tall..." targeted the one boy in the group that fit that description.
"Never have I ever been to mass..." targeted the Catholics in the group.
For the most part, they kept it tame. Nothing I objected to, anyway. (I get on them to keep the language appropriate and topics appropriate for school.) And that's all I ask, really. At least in situations like this.
