The other morning I woke up extremely late, 7:15. I am supposed to be there by 7:30, but unfortunately my alarm didn't go off. I usually make coffee in the morning and take some to work with me. Not on this day. My first math class came in and I mentioned to them that I hadn't had any coffee. You could hear a pin drop.
After the initial shock, there was a gasp. One of the boys said, "Miss Floyd, can I use the phone?" I asked him why and he replied, "Because I wanna call my mama and tell her goodbye!"
I did get some coffee, and the world was safe from anniliation. Needless to say, the children were relieved.
