One of my students, well lets say that Malcolm has a weight issue, and a work issue. I'm hounding him back to his seat. ADD he can't sit down for long and I hear the student he was talking to say "you ask her then."

"Okay," I say "ask me what?"

Malcom starts, "mrs W if your husband was dead and you had no family and was broke, would you hook?"

Glance down at middle age, overweight body dramatically, "Malcolm, who'd pay?"

One of my juniors from last year had some hard luck. Not only did she get pregant her sophmore year, the baby had many neurological problems. Like many girls in this situation, though not all; she grew up some. Yesterday she was bopping down the halls telling all and sundry that her ACT score was 19. Yea, not that much, but for her it was good. This means she will not have to take remedial classes in college. Hope she can get the financial aid.
