yesterday i had some medical drama occur in my english class. a student was getting up to present her book report and as she did so she twisted her knee just enough to pop the knee cap out of place and land on the floor in pain. she claimed to be unable to move. i sent a student to the office to summon our resident emt type person who diagnosed it as a dislocated and then relocated knee cap. the girl went home, leaving the class to eat her doughnuts she'd brought for a visual aid. she emailed me last night to apologize for the disruption and to ask if she could give her book report on friday. kids these days!
