As I handed out the test today a student said, "You should give us bonus points to celebrate the election." Other students voiced their agreement.

I replied, "To celebrate the election, I am going to take points from people with high grades and add those points to people with low grades."

I got a five-star laugh.

I kept going. "I just want to spread the points around."

Another five-star laugh.

It got my test experience started off right. I am not sure if it helped them much.

I wish we could laugh, too. Excellent creative non-fiction. Can I share it with friends?

Certainly. It is in the public domain.
