Depressingly True

| Learning | April 24, 2017

(I am in my Musical Theatre class, and the teacher has just played a song from the musical Annie (“We’d Like to Thank You, Herbert Hoover”). I don’t know Student #1 very well, but Student #2 is very sassy, dramatic, and he is sometimes disrespectful.)

Teacher: “So, this musical actually takes place in the Depression.”

Student #1: “The Great Depression?”

Student #2: *sitting directly behind her* “What other depressions are there?”

(Student #1 turns around, looks Student #2 in the eye, and points to herself.)

Student #2: “ME!”

(Cue a fit of giggles from myself and the rest of the class, except Student #2.)
