Candy High

Will any work get done today? I don't know. Remember how your parents used to ration out your candy after Halloween? Make sure you didn't eat a pound of it for breakfast?

Me neither. Yesterday was fun with all the costumes, but it was just a prelude to the craziness of today. No candy in class is the rule, but they all sneak it anyway. Wrappers magically appear on the floor under desks, and suddenly no one can answer me without rearranging the contents of their mouth.

"noh, ah don hab anee caadee, mizz X"

Then there's furious chewing and swallowing, and then the sticking out of the tongue,

"See?"

sigh...

I like to think that it takes a lot for me to be grossed out, but that displaying of the tongue for inspection does it every time. And whence the desire to do so? Has any teacher ever said to any student "Please open your mouth as wide as you can, stick your tongue out as far as you can, and move it around"? Ew.
