It’s a rare thing when the worst part of feeling the worst ever is missing work because it means missing your students.
Lest I forget how much I miss them when I am not at school, I received several emails from students yesterday, including this one:
Hi Mr.Dicks. I heard you were sick. I hope you feel better. Remember we will always want you here.
Come back tomorrow please.
I also received this one:
I thought you were a tough guy. Get out of bed and get back to school.
Also this one:
I guess your record of not throwing up in like 30 or more years is up. Oh well. Get over it and get back to school.
Nice to see that I have taught them well.
