[🍎] Things my students have said to me the first school day after a fellow student has died.

AKA today.
  1. "I didn't even know him! Why am I crying?"
  2. "Please don't anyone hug me."
  3. *silent teary-eyed stare*
  4. "I just feel so guilty."
  5. "Can I borrow a Sharpie?"

  6. "I need to take a walk."
  7. "I don't want to go to Student Services. They will just want me to talk."
  8. "We are out of tissues."
