Setting: 5th period Contemporary Issues class. Students are talking about how good my classroom smells with the candle wax burner.
Student #1: That smells like cinnamon rolls
Student #2: That smells like something a woman would buy. I bet your wife bought that for ya.
Me: If they sold it, I’d buy woodshop candle wax.
Student #1: Oh yeaaaah. That would be awesome. Like walking into Home Depot or something.
Me: Yeah, nothing would be better than woodshop candle wax and bacon candle wax.
Student #2: Yeah, well I bet your wife still bought it for you.
Me: Nope, I bought it. It’s apple and cinnamon. My wife and I don’t really agree on most of our candle scents. I like stuff like this and she likes…woman stuff.
Student #2: Well, yeah…she *is* a woman.
Student #1: So you and your wife have no ‘common scents?’
Me: haha…I see what ya did there. No, I guess we have no common scents
Student #3: Why does it always smell like feet in here?
Me: Because I collect the toe jam from my feet and combine it with gelatin and create candle wax with it.
Student #2: Gross.
Me: Yeah, cause I’m totally serious about that.
I LOVE snarky, sarcastic alternative high school students
