Getting Ready for the Weekend

It's two minutes before the end of the last class and my kids are working on something they're never going to finish. They all know I'm going to call it homework before we're gone.

The girl who sits by the door has already put it away and is busily counting her birth control pills. I'm thinking about whether or not to tell her to put them away when the bell mercifully rings and she does it herself.

It's kind of indiscreet to count your birth control pills in the classroom.

But it's not nearly as indiscreet as getting yourself pregnant at fifteen.
