An Age-Old Joker

, , , , | Learning | May 30, 2018

(My English teacher has a very good sense of humour and is fine with the students making a joke out of almost anything, so long as it isn’t offensive. One student in particular always makes a joke about her being anciently old — she’s in her early 40s — and she always laughs it off. On this particular day we are discussing what time-period a story must be in because of a certain car in the story.)

Student #1: “So, the car would be from the 1930s, then, not the 60s as you originally said, [Teacher]?”

Student #2: “So, from around when you were born right, [Teacher]?”

Teacher: “No, I was born way before that! Like maybe fifty-ish years before.”

Student #2: “So, about when Canada became a country, then?”

Teacher: “Yeah, I blew up the balloons for the celebration after.” *laughs*
