Laugh Until You Cry

Yesterday I sent a student to the nurse for a very unique reason: laughter.

One of my students came into class yesterday laughing so hard that he was crying.  Something that a teacher said in another class somehow hit his funny bone.  He couldn’t stop laughing, so I sent him to get a drink of water.  Still crying and laughing.  I told him to walk around for a while and get it out of his system.  He came back a few minutes later, his face red and tears streaming down his face.  He was laughing so hard that he couldn’t breathe.

I sent him to the nurse with with the special nurse’s pass.  For the reason I had to check “other: laughing”.  He didn’t come back for the rest of class.

Today I asked him about it, and he said that he was laughing so hard that he couldn’t breath and almost had to go to the E.R.  I think that’s worth a day out of class.

 

On another note: I am going on a media fast for the month of October.  I’ll see you guys in November.
