It's Long And Hard

Sometimes you know you've said something wrong as soon as the words pass your lips.

Today, when telling my students what a wonderful teacher I am, I told them they get a good final exam--as opposed to the final exam created by a fellow teacher. That one is long, and hard.

There was no immediate recovery from that slip-up.

I've written some stupendous exams (some of them even fair, looking back) and I've written some that fell short.

And I've said things I wished immediately I hadn't.

Now that's only anecdotal evidence - wouldn't stand up anywhere outside a blog - but maybe we're just human?

Yeah, that's funny, teenagers aren't gonna let that one go by.

Wasn't there a Beavis and Butthead bit about long and hard?
