Last month I developed a crush on a particular guy who made me laugh and forget about my rough existence for a few hours each day. His zany (and at times crude) sense of humor had me laughing and smiling even when I wasn't in his presence. I admit I was at first intimidated by his extreme appearance, but after a while I and everyone else saw a heart of gold and an intelligent mind beneath the wild hair and punk trappings. Sadly, there's nothing I can do about my crush, as this guy was my teacher, so I'm just left with good memories and a few slightly naughty jokes to pass on to friends and family members. Right now, he's probably taking a well-earned break, and when fall comes around, I know another classroom will roar with laughter and learn under his instruction.
