She kept on snoring...

First of all, thank you so much for all the kind responses to my last rant.  I greatly appreciate all of you wonderful friends and family who are such encouragers and help me along the road.

Now, since my last couple of posts have been rather depressing, I thought I'd lighten the mood a bit.  I have a quick story to tell you from class today.  I should probably be sad about this, but instead it just makes me laugh every time I think about it.  So here goes...

I was lecturing this morning when all of a sudden I heard distinct snoring.  I paused and wondered how to address it.  Usually just a small comment is enough to wake up a dozer, so I looked up and said, "That's funny.  I could have sworn I just heard snoring."  The class giggled a bit and I thought, "Ok good.  The giggle should be enough to wake up the culprit."

So I continued to lecture.

Until I looked around the classroom and saw her.

There she was, in her green hoodie, hood over her head, the back of her head parallel to the ground, legs spread a part, arms dangling from her chair, mouth wide open.  And I lost it.  The sight of this girl completely knocked out was just too much for me to take in.  I burst into laughter.  I apologized to the class:  "I'm sorry, but that is just too funny," which of course made everyone turn their heads.  After a few seconds the entire class was laughing.

The best part?  She just kept on snoring.
