A Chuckle for my Teacher Friends

It doesn't matter what subject you teach, every one of you has felt this way.  At some point in your career, you have all had to bite your lip, tongue, cheek, thumb, etc. to keep from saying something snarky like, "Did you know that you just said that out loud?" or "That's absurd!" However, as teachers, we learn early on to say exactly what the teacher in this cartoon spouts. "That's an interesting idea. Can you tell us more about it?"  And therein lies the reason you see us huddled together on Fridays at 4 in our local Mexican joints, sucking down Margaritas. Believe it or not, being a teacher isn't all fun and games.
