me: Oh okay. That's fine. Give me a call sometime when you want to reschedule.
student B: Hi Lang! Did we have an appointment today?
student B: Oops. I totally forgot and I'm on Christmas vacation...in the Galapagos.
me: your cell phone works in the Galapagos?
student B: (dial tone)
student C: Lang, listen...it's over between us...it was good when it was good, but those times are gone...all we do is fight now.
me: That's not true. What are you saying?
student C: I can't do this anymore. I love you but it hurts too bad to go on. I'm leaving you.
me: Damn you! Damn you Tommy and your games!!!
Anyway, so I got to stay in all day and watch the first season of the Sopranos and man, was it violent!
FYI, one thing that you never knew as a student: when there is a snow day or practice is cancelled or you have a field trip, your teachers are just (if not more) excited to get the day off.
