But You Like Me

I just came from my third period beginning English class. We were discussing prepositions.

"Why is it in the morning but at night?"

"I don't know, actually. Prepositions are very difficult and there aren't any rules. My second language is Spanish. In Spanish they have two words for for. They say por and para. I always mix them up."

"Oh, Mr. Goldstein. You spoke Spanish in English class. How could you?"

"You are a troublemaker."

"Yes, but you like me."

"It's true. I do."

It's really unfair when the students read your mind. There should be a chancellor's regulation or something.
