    Picture the scene: I was walking around the classroom pontificating about what Romeo might have meant when he hypothesized that a personified Death might decide to take Juliet as a paramour. I was making a point about how he thought Juliet's attractiveness surpassed that of mere mortal women.

    It was at that point that I asked my class to consider what it must mean if a supernatural being, Death himself, were to be enamored of "Juliet's immense booty."

    Argh!!!!!

    Well, we all had a good laugh. I told my class I was going to say the same thing all day long and pretend it was an accident. :eek:

    Gosh I have a really embarrassing swear story....my middle schoolers were labeling note names in an exercise and one of the measures spelled...

    DBAG!
    Which I then said out loud (genuinely not realizing it was a swear until I said it) clapped my hand over my mouth and started laughing out of surprise. My 8th grade boys pretty much DIED.
