2nd Period

Midway through a lesson on chemical reactions, the students were applying what they knew about food spoiling to how enzymes work. Chemical reactions happen in your body, I said, when you eat and digest food. Excuse me, she said, and motioned more timidly than she ever has for me to come over. I lean down.

"Is chemical reaction also when you poop?" she questions in an accented whisper, and blushes at the shy half-smiles from the students sitting next to her.

Cutest thing ever.
