No class on Thursday

This morning I taught my class, which I do on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Today as the class was ending, I reminded my students that there is no class this coming Thursday.

“We will be meeting again next Tuesday morning,” I told them. “Meanwhile, remember that there is no class on Thursday. I hope everybody has a happy Halloween.”

As soon as I said it, I realized that I had gotten the holiday wrong. But once you’ve said something, you can’t just unsay it. So I had no choice but to roll with it.

“Oops,” I continued. “I should have said Thanksgiving. Then again, I guess it depends on how scary your family is.”

Fortunately, that got a laugh.
