Did I really just say that?

Today in class I made the mistake that all English teachers dread. The class had been in groups, each group discussing a different short story. We'd heard from two already. Then it happened.

"Now let's hear from the group that discussed 'A Hard Man is Good to Find'."

And in the stunned silence that followed I heard Flannery O'Connor spin in her grave.

There are no words for how awesome that story is. Me thinks Flannery would have giggled.
