My students love to flatter me.

"Teacher is Angelina Jolie," one of my elementary student states in the middle of my last class today. "Wow, I resemble Angelina Jolie?" I think to myself.

Of course, this was followed by another student saying, "Teacher is Michael Jackson," to which the original student responds, "Teacher is Mike Tyson."

I don't know if I'm supposed to be flattered, but I kind of am. I am such a good variety of pop culture, according to these kids, it's amazing. Maybe the kids are just listing off all of the famous people they know. Who knows, but I'm going to take it all to heart. These kids know what they're talking about.

OH MY GOD! HAHAHAHAHA! I screamed with laughter. "Teacher is Mike Tyson!" YES YES YES! Mike Tyson! I want him to speak at my wedding, funeral, anything formal. PLEASE! If Tyson is not available, will you speak - for you, indeed, are Iron Mike.
