Some Funny Questions

Hi nuggets! It has been awhile, but life has been a bit hectic. I have also been a bit on the sick side for the last week or so, and blogging wasn't on my to do list. I wanted to share a few questions I have been asked from my students, particularly 1 outspoken student, during my recent teaching experiences.

Student: Ms. Mer In America, are you of Mexican descent.
Me: No.
Student: What are you then?
Me: Eastern European and Italian.
Student: Really? I could have sworn you were Mexican.

Student: Ms. Mer In America, how old are you?
Me: Guess.
Student: Well I'm 35, so 35?
Me: (In horror) No, I am not 35.
Student: 34?
Me: No.
Student: (When another student guessed...) DAYYYUMMMM.

Student: Ms. Mer in America, have you been so busy with school that you don't date?
Me: There's always time for dating. But this just got inappropriate.
Student: She does date!!

Student: (After I was using my other job at a fitness center as an example in class) Does your gym have a steam room?
Me: Yes, but its broken. Moving on...
Student: I love steam rooms.

Student: Ms. Mer In America, since you like dogs, I have a dog that we don't have time to take care of. I work, my fiancé works, and the kids don't do anything to help. I didn't want to adopt it in the first place. What should I do?
Me: (Sensing she wanted me to take her dog) You probably shouldn't have gotten a dog in the first place. I don't know what you should do. I'm outrun by animals at my place, so I can't take it.
Student: I knew we shouldn't of gotten the dog. Thanks Ms. Mer in America.

There have been more questions, but they are too X-rated to talk about on a family blog such as Mer In America. We talk about some deep stuff in my class. This is the 35 year old version of Ms. Mer IN America below.


  1. Hahahah them questions are a biiiit inappropriate! So funny. Just wanted to let you know that it was nice meeting you Tuesday, hate that we didn't get to chat, hopefully next time! There was so many of us - it was hard to talk to everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I'm following your blog now and can't wait to get to know you more. Also, do you have an IG? I stay more up to date with that than I do blog reading.
