God In The Dock...?
Some of my students really have a weird outlook on life.
Handing out some worksheets to one of my new Year 8 classes, I was stopped by one boy who wanted to know why, if I was called "Miss," I wore a wedding ring.
I explained that I had taken vows. "So, you're, like, married to God then?" queried another student.
This caused some consternation: "What? So does that mean you can't get a divorce?"
I hope that the fleeting consideration which flitted across my mind of how one could possibly go about claiming any alimony doesn't constitute a mortal sin...
