When Teenagers Overheat

Something odd happened on the first day of school today. It was excessively warm here in Wisconsin. In my classroom, it was between 90-95 f with a humidity level of 80-90 percent. The custodians gave us a giant fan, but it was too loud to leave it on. We couldn't hear anything. I plunged through the lesson plan, which was an outline of the class, mostly rules and procedures. They listened for the most part politely, but as soon as I went over the procedure for visiting the drinking fountain, 3,078 people signed out to use the drinking fountain. I don't know how this was possible in a class of twenty, but there you have it.

Tomorrow, it's supposed to be even hotter.
