“I’m pretty sure your leg hair isn’t helping you with your map project”

Teachers say the most random things, and when the things are placed into context, it almost makes sense.  Case in point: my ninth graders are creating maps based on the text of To Kill a Mockingbird.  During class today, they were working with their partners to compare quotes and start to sketch their maps.  One pair in the back was hard at work for a while but at one point I looked over to see the boy pulling up his pant leg and messing with his leg hair.  I looked at him and all I could say was “I’m pretty sure your leg hair isn’t helping you with your map project.”  After I said it, I started to laugh to myself because really? that came out of my mouth? Teachers say the most random things, but it kinda makes sense!
