Unappreciated Slip of the Tongue

When I was in high school, I had a particularly boring seminary teacher. Nice guy, but super boring. It was not uncommon to see notebook doodling, under the desk texting, heads nodding or even full out napping. One especially boring day, our teacher got off on a tangent about school sports. His kids went to a different high school than the one we went to and apparently his favorite thing to do at sports games was to cheer for both teams. He said "it really drives my nuts crazy when I do that. I mean... it really drives my kids nuts!" Without skipping a beat he continued on with his lesson. I had to literally cover my mouth so I wouldn't laugh out loud and I looked around to see if anyone else was struggling as much as I was. All I saw was the same old doodling, nodding and napping. No one else in the entire room even noticed. Except my best friend sitting across the room, who was practically peeing her pants with stifled laughter. And that is why we are best friends.
