Teachable moment

Today was our homecoming game, so nearly every student was walking around jingling and tinkling and tripping over their mums. I had planned to give a quiz (since the quiz I gave two days ago showed they hadn't learned the material). While grading the papers, one student had written a note on the top that said, "We are going to loose."

At first I just shook my head and continued grading. Then, like a bolt of lightening, the appropriate response hit me. I wrote in, "Oh! Thank goodness! I was afraid we might lose." Who says I have to teach ONLY math?
