bad teacher

So I'm supposed to be grading limericks tonight, like right now, but I've just returned from the PTA meeting/social event at Applebee's (they were two different excursions; don't be jealous) and it's kinda late [but I am NOT drunk! Does that sound too defensive?] and I just want to sleep. I'm torn, because I am subbing first period for the teacher who shares my classroom so technically I should be going to bed so I'm capable of getting up earlier; but then I won't have time to read everyone's poems before fourth period and I promised - yeah, smart move, teacher lady. Not only did I promise but I said these words: "I absolutely utterly promise I will get your stuff graded tonight." Wha? [I was NOT high during class]. I said that because a) I was supposed to look over their work Tuesday but instead watched 3:10 to Yuma (again) and b) I was supposed to look over their work last night but instead went to bed at 9:28 and c) I completely forgot about the #*&%(*)#@&(*# PTA meeting tonight (which is always, per mandate, followed by drinks and appetizers at a bar).

There once was a teacher who lied
...this can only end badly.
