Student: I liked your dance.
Me: Thank you.
Student: I think you need to learn the Seatbelt.
(Other students murmur approvingly)
Student: (demonstrates the Seatbelt)
Me: Of course. The Seatbelt.
Student: Try it.
Me:(bites lip) Show me again, son.
Student: (repeats Seatbelt)
Me: Um. Okay. (Attempt the Seatbelt. It is lame and lurpy)
Student: Uh. You know there are tutorials on YouTube.
Me: I will take that under advisement. (There are three minutes left in class.)
Another Student: And the Cat Daddy. You need to do the Cat Daddy.
(Other students unsuccessfully try to control their mirth.)
Me:(wary) Cat Daddy?
(Several students demonstrate. I am relieved to see that the Cat Daddy does not appear lewd.)
Students: Try it! Try it!
Me: I will watch the tutorial.(Logs in to YouTube, under "teachable moment" license.)
We all watch the Cat Daddy tutorial. It is impressive.
I try it. Kind of.
Happiness ensues, and students exit with good cheer.
