Did You See That?

Reviewing for the final today, we went over some Romeo and Juliet quotations.  While one student answered, another raised her hand.  I acknowledged the newly raised hand and told her I’d come to her next.  When her turn arrived, she said, and I quote, “Today’s not Friday.”

Fascinating.  Why did I assume she had something to add to our discussion of Romeo and Juliet?  You would think I would have learned by now, but alas.

I acknowledged her statement, indicating that she correctly deduced the day of the week.  Then she added, “You’re wearing jeans, and it’s not Friday.”

I began to understand.

I wear jeans to work every Friday and never any day other than Friday.  Until today.  Prior to today I wore jeans every single Friday of the school year and only on Fridays did I wear jeans.  I apparently ruined my streak, with only one Friday left in the academic year.

And she noticed.

The things my students pay attention to always amaze me, but I also find it sweet.
