‘Her mouth was trash’
It was another night of grading papers, and I was getting a bit bleary-eyed as I read English reports from my students. I perked up, however, when I read one paper. The student was reporting on White Princess, a movie he had seen. He wrote, in part:
White Princess looks beautiful and handsome. But she is very bad girl.
She said, “I kill you, a**hole.” Her mouth was trash.
The asterisks are mine. After all, I run a family-friendly site here. Students can be full of surprises, even when they’re aspiring pastors and missionaries.
