This year, resolve to not pray that God would “help us all to have a good time tonight.”
This year, resolve to not call your students “you guys.” Your name isn’t Madison and you are not a Chili’s waitress.
This year, resolve to use the word “prayerfully” in ways that do not involve asking people to consider giving donations.
This year, tell your students to occasionally throw in a “If you’re actually reading this, circle this sentence in red” into the middle of their papers just to keep you on your toes.
And for the same reason, resolve to throw an occasional “If you’re actually reading this” sort of claim into the lesson plans you’re required to submit.
