Sexiest part of a man: His hands
Last time you cried: Too private
Last time you laughed: When Sean came in to my class about ten minutes ago and mimicked Principal Dalton’s speech at last week’s staff meeting. “It’s only when we work as a team,” *cough, cough, make sure hair is still covering up bald spot* “that our students benefit.” *Hitch up pants over bulging belly*
