When driving home yesterday with my carpool buddy, we were discussing a student of hers who turned in a craptastic essay and then whined about the grade he earned, which was a totally respectable C, when he should have probably failed. She graded the essay pretty easily since he was out for about a week and missed some material. She laughed and said he had given him "a gentleman's C", which I noted sounded dirty, and I said it sounded like you should add "you know, the old reach around" (you've seen that Arrested Development episode, right? everyone should have!) to the end of that phrase.
1. I'm totally going to start using the phrase "a gentleman's C" more often.
2. I promise to never use the phrase "reach around" in class. That might be going over the line just a bit.
I just realized my grandmother is probably going to read this post. For that reason, if you don't know what I'm talking about, I'm not going to define it for you. Google it. Not at work though, OK? I'm sorry, Meemaw.
