OMG that is funny. I'll bet you had a snappy comment, but the story is better without it!

Sorry, but that is HILARIOUS. Then again, you must appreciate the humor in it, too, or else you wouldn't have shared it. :)

I know it's hard to believe but I am a qualified art teacher. I did my teaching practice in an all boys school. Hardest thing I ever did in my life, and why I decided to set up my own graphic design business.

Oh, that's a classic story from the master! And you had the grace to tell it on yourself.

Now that's funny right there. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to pass this one along to the wife as it's too good not to. Take care.

Very funny! You have to be careful who you're talking to.

Oh, this brought a chuckle to my evening! I twigged what was about to happen when you described the boy's attention and I was delighted to be proved right. Too funny!

Love this ! brings back several memories, especially the one where I was pontificating in front of a seventh grade class and swallowed a fly.

Hahahaha! You got me! I was thinking there was an exposed breast or something that you had overlooked in that painting.

I know I shouldn't laugh but this truly is funny---and yes, embarrassing. You always tell the most entertaining stories. By the way---the painting really is lovely.

Oh, that's awful. You must have been so embarrassed. I hope you recovered enough to return and keep teaching the little monkeys. I took art criticism in college and loved it!

That really is an amazing painting but the nail bit was just too funny. But you have to admit the kid had a good eye and was paying attention. Hope you gave him a good grade.

At least they listened to you. Love, Janie

I am smiling with you not at you:) oh my....that would be a faux pas but it seems the kids were listening and if I had you as a teacher, I would have been riveted since I love art so much. I had the honour of seeing this painting and it was breathtaking.

Uh oh, now I have to admit that I took an art history class in college. When the prof. turned off the lights and started showing pictures ... that was my cue to nod out and catch up on my shuteye. At least this kid was paying attention!

Lesson learned....next time take your own screen. LOL ;)
