One of my students looked at another and said, without any malice, “I wonder what Ms would be like in an entirely white room with nobody and nothing around.”
I held papers in front of my mouth to hide my smile. I regained my composure and said, “Do you think I’d be more sane? Or crazier?”
He paused and thought for a moment before honestly and earnestly saying, “I think you’d be more… both.”
I nodded my head. “I think so, too.”
Who am I kidding? I’d go completely Yellow Wallpaper, smooching around the room.
