As a lesson to you all, never ever slowly say the word horse in front of your students, especially those street smart students. I knew what I was saying as it was coming out but couldn't send the signal from my brain to my mouth fast enough.
Also, note to self, when a kid comes up to you and asks,
"Why is your hair golden?"
"Because I have blonde hair, sweety."
"Then why do you have some dark on top also?"
It is time to get your roots done! It's not even bad, like a bright blonde to a darker blonde, but man I made that appointment as soon as I got home today!
What a welcome back from Thanksgiving break. Gotta love it!
