And it's true.

All my students know I practice yoga and live with Mark and Lester the forpus pacificus. One of them asked me if I could put my legs behind my head. He was trying to be gross. I said no. It is a new problem to be the "older woman" that my 23 year old students have a crush on. This bunch seems to think and talk about sex more than is usual for my classes. I told them, "I love grammar, you hate it, it will never work between us. Plus, I am smarter than you." In ESL you can get away with saying things like this--one reason I like it. Then I taught a lesson on passive voice gerunds and infinitives. Example:

"I don't mind being manipulated by pictures of small baby animals."
