Why does my infinity symbol look like a pizza?

Me: Sorry, I'm a germophobe.
Student: Hey!  Germs have feelings, too!

Student: Are you a germophobe?  You're always using hand sanitizer.
Me: I don't know who has touched that before, and I don't want to get sick.  Just think, the person sitting in your desk last hour could have had a cold.
Student:  I think you just turned me into a germophobe!

  1. I love this series so much! It helps me focus on the good that happens in a day instead of the things that irritate me. It's inspired me to jot down the funny things my students say daily so that I can read over them and just have a chuckle at all the things that go on. I've actually started posting my own to go back and look at later. If you'd like to have a laugh at some crazier students than yours, you can check it out here: http://fibonaccishuffle.blogspot.com/2016/04/things-my-students-say.html
