    My class collapsed into hysterical laughter this afternoon while I was reading aloud--"gasped for breath" came out "grasped for breast"! :eek:

    It happens to us all. At least it sounds like your students were appropriate.

    Mrs C . . I can't tell you how many times I have "stormed the bit**es of Normandy" and I don't ever use swear words. Something about saying that phrase makes me switch beaches for bit**es :)

    We used Boom Whackers in science for one of our sound explorations a few weeks ago. For some reason, I kept waning to call them tallywhackers. I bit my tongue several times. Finally, I had had enough of a group of boys across the room getting to rambunctious I called across the room to them "Boys, quick whacking your tallywhackers!" before I could think. :whistle: I did my best to keep my "teacher face" on, but the child specific aide who was in here was looking at me and about to bust out laughing. It was deadly silent for a minute, then snickers all over the room.

    My "best" was telling a business calculus class that "just because it's long, doesn't mean it's hard."

    The funniest teacher moment though, has to be my freshman bio prof. We were in lab, and it was the second or third class of the term and she was assigning our first lab report. As she was talking about it, she launched into a lecture about the importance of communication skills. Well, mid sentence, somebody's phone went off, but it was set on vibrate, so what the prof actually said was...

    "The most important thing in your life is your vibrator." She still hasn't lived that down.
