A boy falls asleep in algebra class. So the teacher refers him for drug and alcohol testing. He passes the breathalyzer. He has no track marks. Diagnosis: He’s bored.

It must be depressing for a teacher when she puts the hyperactive kid to sleep. And he’s still getting an A.

  1. LOL. That is *way* depressing!

  2. My sophmore year of high school was boring. I had three study halls a day–and this at a “challenging” private school.

    It was a relief to homeschool the rest of highschool. At least then, when my time was wasted and dull, it was my responsibility.

    I have fallen asleep in only one class, Physics 10/20 (this is Alberta in the late 80’s). The instructor was the prototypical monotone geek.

  5. I’m just another great fan of your blog.
