“When you’re at the pool lounging on a beach chair and some little kids are running and the lifeguard screams out “no running” do you respond “excuse, not all of us are running”? No, you don’t. The lifeguard didn’t have to specifically state who they were talking to because you’re intelligent enough to comprehend that the comment wasn’t being directed at you.”—
Found a quote that shuts down that “not all men” argument pretty well. (via mykicks)
My students were doing speeches in groups. One of the groups finished before others and a girl in the group was waving her arms around a bit, so I copied her. She jokingly blew me a kiss. I immediately slid over to her, knelt by her chair, put my hand out for her and said in my best takarazuka voice, "Ojou-sama…". She put her hand in mine and practically squealed. She beamed at me for the rest of class.
I hope to all heck that I won’t get in trouble for that, but it was pretty hilarious.
After school I was in the gym and one of the basketball boys came over to me to tell me one of the other players likes me. I sort of knew already anyway, so I was able to brush it off without the guy in question hearing. He basically ran away anyway.
