Anecdote: Moving swiftly on

Type: Anecdote

This month's winning anecdote comes from Roxana Fermani.

I've been through many hilarious situations in my classes but this one is unforgettable! 

I was making the students (teenagers) practise second conditional sentences so I was using the following activity: "If you were an animal, which animal would you like to be and why? Or, "If you were a piece of art, which one would you like to be and why?"

After asking each question, I would randomly choose students to answer. Everything was fine until I asked: "If you were an object, what would you like to be and why?", and I looked at a male student who answered loudly: "A Tampax! Would you like to know why?" Obviously I told him that no further explanation was necessary. Short and sweet!
