When an adorably nerdy student asked, “Do you have the book Entertaining Satan?”
This week was pretty rough, but I had a couple moments with students that made me think, “Oh right, that’s why I do this.”
A very shy, nerdy-looking girl came in and asked me in this very soft, sweet voice, “Do you have the book Entertaining Satan?” (And yes, we do.)
I put some new graphic novels and comics on display, and one of my students who is very sweet, but has a very rough home life and really struggles in school, picked up Ultimate Spider-Man by Brian Michael Bendis, and said to me, “Oh man! I’ve been looking for this comic forever! Spider-Man is black in this!”

Last week I was working with an English class just beginning work on their senior papers. As I was circulating, I noticed a group of girl typing, “what’s the scientific name for vagina” into Google. From behind them, I said, “Is that your topic?”
They were pretty over-the-top mortified as only teenage girls can be. I felt compelled to follow up with, “And that IS the scientific name.”
