“You’re Weird, Mrs. Pedersen”

My building at the school is closed at lunch, but I heard someone on the stair landing today. I called down, “Did you see the sign on the door?”

One of my science students was there with a girl. He looked up at me and said, “No.”

“This building is closed at lunch. You shouldn’t be in here.”

They get up. “You’re weird, Mrs. Pedersen.”

“I’m weird?”


“That’s okay. I like weird.”

“You’re one of the nicest teachers I know.”

“Ha ha. Bye, now.”
