Um, You Want Me to Poop Where?

From Last Week:

A few of my students were talking about how cool it would be to go back in time. The following conversation is real. Because really? Who could make this stuff up?

Me: When?

Student 1: The Wild West.

Student 2: YEAH!

Me: pause You know, they didn't have toilets back then inside the houses.

Student 1 & Student 2 exchange awkward glances.

Student 1: In a hushed, horrified tone So if I had to poop?

Me: You'd go outside. Or in a bucket, maybe.

Student 2 wrinkles her nose. Student 1 looks more horrified, if it all possible. His eyes are now HUGE.

Student 2: Like, on the ground?

Me: Maybe the ground. Or in an outdoor toilet called an outhouse.

Student 1: I can't do that. I can't. I can pee outside, sure. But pooping OUTSIDE? No. Forget that.

And that, my friends, is the type of conversation that happens two minutes before the bell rings on a Friday.
