I Don’t Want To Hear Another Word For 28 Days, D’Avonte

Standard

For those of you who are new…D’Avonte, easily one of my favorites (okay, they’re all my favorite), is a 6′ 3″, self-identified drag queen, who comes to school in full regalia every day.  Another fun thing about D’Avonte…D’Avonte likes to pretend to be menstruating every time there’s work to avoid.

This is what happens when I’m trying to teach math, y’all. Please picture the entire conversation in a stage whisper…

D’Avonte: “Miss McMcerson…Miss McMcerson!”

Me: “What?”

D’Avonte: “I got my period.  Do you have a pad?”

Me: (Shaking my head)

D’Avonte: “Miss McMcerson…I need a pad.”

Me: “This is your sixth period this month.”

D’Avonte: “I need a pad.”

Me: “What you need is a health class.”

  1. OMG! If that boy is bleedin’ “down there” he has bigger issues than being gay! LOL! He obviously knows you are excepting of him so he can play with you! 😀
    (I’m surprised the school will let him dress like that) :-/

    • My administration THANKFULLY recognizes that for him…his (her, depending on the day) manner of dress is appropriate. I’m so lucky to work with AMAZING administration. 🙂
