SQOTD-“Can you at least, you know, pep it up a little? Be enthusiastic at least?”

The first day of class is always filled with policies, rules, and a ton of “BLAHBLAHBLAH.”  After going through the regular list of evacuation routes, emergency procedures, and other crap that no one wants to hear about but everyone needs to know, one of my students raised his hand and asked,

“How do you feel about sleeping in class?  I get tired sometimes.”

My co-teacher and I furrowed our brows, and responded,

“Um, well, we want you to be conscious for class.  So no.  No sleeping.”

He responded with the first Student Quote of the Day for the year:

“Can you at least, you know, pep it up a little?  Be enthusiastic at least?”

Yeah, ok thanks.
