Help me concentrate

by Mr. Sheehy

My juniors are working on a research assignment and to check in with them, I handed out scratch paper and told them to write on it any way I could help them, whether it be showing them how to punctuate a quote, or grading some assignment they’d just finished. I should have known I’d get a response like this:

I don’t need help, but candy would help me concentrate, and it keeps my sugar level stable.

If I weren’t such a cheapskate, I would have tossed him a Tootsie-Pop. Alas, I can only offer him a picture of a Gummy Bear.
