Scenes in My Classroom

I come to class (uncharacteristically) early.

Me: Hey, y'all.  S'up. (Looking around) Where is everyone?

Class:  You're early!

Me: (looking at the clock) Whoa.  How'd that happen?  (Pause, while I take in the oddity of this.)  I guess I can't teach until everyone gets here.

I sit on the desk, chatting with students about the upcoming assignment.

Student in front row, messing with his android: dr. delagar.  We've got five minutes.  Name a song you like.

Me: You got any Ganstagrass on that?

Student: I can look it up on You Tube

Other Student: Any what now?

First Student: What song you want?

Me: Big Branch.

(Student starts it playing.  Everyone listens.)

Third student: What is this?

First Student: Is this what you listen to?

Me: It's hot, ain't it?

I discovered it a couple months ago. I can't get enough!
