Root Beer Spazz Attack!
Anyway, I forgot that the students don't know what RootBeer is, and I was drinking a can of MUG after lunch. It has a picture of a mug filled with a foamy dark beverage.
My students assumed I was drinking alcohol. I didn't understand why Scott was spazzing out so I just blew him off. But when my other students started buzzing and passing the can around a little lightbulb went on *ding*
"You guys! That's just soda! It's called rootbeer!"
Then I understood why Scott was talking about Germany and dark beers, because of the picture on the can. So I straightened it out and there were bellows of laughter, June was especially relieved, but Peter was still examining the can and reading the ingredients, "So what is the alcohol content of this?"
Um, hello again, that's just soda! More laughs.
So what...these guys think that I brought BEER to class? Come on, now give me a break!
