Allegedly Said The Raven

I know this is too much to ask. Quite forward of me, really. I need to be called on the carpet and given a stern talking-to for even suggesting it. But if it's not too much trouble, could you pupils please...

turn in today's work

put your name on your paper

turn in both pages of the two-page assignment

lay your two pages on the tops of the turn-in stacks, side by side

turn over the paper and do the back

actually write 15 letters in the 15 lines for the 15 matching questions

bring your book to class

not ask to borrow a book, which has been against classroom policy all year

stay in your seat and not shoot baskets with yesterday's returned assignment

make it 50 minutes without a potty break

make it 50 minutes without a drink break

As The Raven apparently said last year on an essay test of, what else, The Raven:

"That is all."

I'd be happy if they could wait for more than 60 minutes without a potty break.

Some students must have a bladder the size of a pecan. However, if they were playing outside--magically--their bladder increases its capacity.

It's a miracle!

Sioux,
And I'm sure they refer to their tiny bladder as a PEE-CAN.

so demanding, you!

Kathy,
Yes, it's like I'm over-preparing them for their future days of walking down a dirt road with Sheriff Taylor, whistling mindlessly on the way to the fishing hole.
