Algebra 2. It had been a peaceful day. The prior classes had been working nearly silently (without being asked). But 5th period wasn't doing that silence stuff. Nah, they had stuff to talk about.
It wasn't a test, so I didn't really care if they were talking. I just kinda hoped it would be on task talking...
Nah. A girl seated nearly in front of me spent the whole period talking about how she didn't have a boyfriend, had never had a boyfriend, but kind of wanted one.
I gently nudged her with hints that perhaps she might want to, I don't know, do the math. But the students around her weren't helping. They were buying into the conversation.
Except for one boy. I could tell he was bored by the whole thing.
Seriously, that was the exact look on his face. Mine too, probably.
I mean, the conversation wasn't even good enough for me to take notes on to use here. But that's how it goes sometimes...
