The Life of Bon: She's a witch!

She's a witch!

Those crazy, good for nothing juniors of mine are at it again.

We just finished reading The Crucible in class.

You know, that one American classic where a bunch of crazies start accusing every person they've ever met in their life of being a witch?

Yep, that one.

To finish off the play, I let my students try crying witch to see how they liked it.  The rules:  They could accuse anyone they wanted of being a witch as long as it was not done maliciously, and as long as they had "concrete" reasons for suspecting the person of witchcraft.

I got the usual suspects:  Kobe Bryant, Tim Tebow, Angelina Jolie, Santa Clause, Kim Kardashian, little brothers, evil step mothers, etc.  What surprised me was how many students accused... well... me... 
That's right!  Little old me!  Can you believe them!?  The nerve of those seventeen year olds!


Among my accusations:

  • I keep my youth by drinking diet coke but I'm really 80+ years old.
  • I lock Greg up- I have him "chained in her utility closet with only parcels of food to each day.  Neighbors report of moaning and chaines rattling at night."
  • I am too short.
  • I assign too much homework and grade too harshly.
  • I got married because I needed to hide my real identity and all the crimes I had committed.
  • I report all my "evil doings on a blog where rare witches look to give and gain insight."
  • Nobody has seen Greg since the marriage.
  • I got a fake degree from the "Devil's school", BYU.
  • I am Kim Kardashian's apprentice and I "Keep up with the Kardashians way toooo much."
Ah, those kids.  They've got me all figured out, don't they?
