When I wore my hair down on Thursday it elicited a variety of responses from my form class including "groovy", "wild" and "oh, my God!".
Unfortunatley, I hadn't been there for registration the previous afternoon and quite uncharacteristically they'd been naughty. So, I had to do Ms Angry - I am hurt...embarrassed...angry...you've let me down etc.etc. Their shoulders sagged, their heads dropped and their eyes were downcast. I finished with "And does anyone have anything relevant to say?".
S., who has very severe learning difficulties, put his hand up. "Is it important?" I scowled.
"Yes. You look very beautiful".
How can you be angry at that? A blush and a fit of giggles and it was all forgotten.
