So, there’s me at my nerdiest school picture best. For whatever reason, we get two dozen wallet size pictures of ourself. I don’t know 24 people period, much less 24 that would actually want a picture of me. Instead, they go to my students–just not in the way you think.
I tell them that they may be getting a picture, they just don’t know when or where it may come from. Perhaps I sneak it into their bag when they’re gone to the bathroom. Tape it onto the back of their project before I hand it back. Slide it into their English book when they’re not paying attention. Whatever. My picture just shows up, and whoever receives it has a day that gets a little better. Or at least a little weirder.
