For the First Time in Forever

During Check In for Speech class:

“Hi, I’m Waterhouse, and I’m super excited that we don’t have a speech meet this weekend.”

Gasps of (mostly) mock shock and horror from the students.

“But, Waterhouse!  Don’t you love us?” they exclaim.

“Those two things are not mutually exclusive,” I say.

“How can you say that?” they exclaim.

“I can still love you and want two days away from you,” I say.

“But what will you do without us?” they ask.

“Not speech!” I say.

Hello, weekend.  I’ve missed you.
