Accident-prone elementary teacher Pigs describes her latest classroom mishap.

I was conferencing with a student about their writing, and I tend to abuse personal space when kids are at my table. Their little story was really quite amusing, and I wanted to laugh to demonstrate my enjoyment of their craft. Since it was a quiet writing time in my class I tactfully kept my mouth closed and did the church laugh. You know, the slight blowing of air through the nose whilst smiling with mouth? Yeah. Well, I puffed a dry little crusty right onto their paper.
That's right. I shot a booger on a kid's composition. Try to play that one off. Bygones.

Thanks for sharing, Pigs.
