My Other Teacher Talent (Bladder Control is the First)

These are the sounds I was able to identify with 100% accuracy yesterday without ever looking up from whatever I was doing.

  1. An iPhone falling from a back pocket and hitting the carpeted classroom floor.
  2. A fidget spinner spinning.
  3. A Rubik’s cube being completed in what the culprit hoped would be a record time among his friends.
  4. The sound of “not the video clip I assigned” coming out of earbuds that were in a student’s ears across the room.
  5. A thunderous, wet sounding fart. But then, who can’t identify that one? The only thing I will say is that I’ve been doing this long enough that I can tell you with certainty that the kid was as shocked as anyone when he didn’t get away with the quiet zinger he was expecting.

I think we can agree that my life is very glamorous.
