Me: Okok I have to go now..need to finish my homework!
Student continues: Butbut you are already so old – (I flinch at the word) – how can you have homework!
Somehow, ginahs have this strange conception that homework is an exclusive privilege reserved for children only. They always look so shocked when I tell them I have homework – more shocked than when I get back their test marks. Perhaps it is because I have shattered the beautiful picture they have painted of the grownup world – a world without homework! (It cannot get any more awesome than this)
Well, I’m sure they’ll be less wanting to grow up quickly now. muhahaha.
