Why I Love My Job

Today I had my students reading The Crucible out loud. There is a stage direction that says, "Betty is lying on the bed inert."

One of my students asked me what it meant, so I explained that she's lying there stiff, motionless and unable to do anything.

"Oh, you mean she was planking," shouted another student.

Doh!

Yes, dear students, Betty Parris was planking.

Thank you for coming by my blog, by the way. I'm glad you liked my story enough to advance it to the next round of judging. :)
