Beware the Church Laugh

Accidentally had another accident today. Didn't get hurt. May have permanently scarred child, but did not injure self.

I was conferencing with a student about their writing, and I tend to abuse personal space when kids are at my table. Their little story was really quite amusing, and I wanted to laugh to demonstrate my enjoyment of their craft. Since it was a quiet writing time in my class I tactfully kept my mouth closed and did the church laugh. You know, the slight blowing of air through the nose whilst smiling with mouth? Yeah. Well, I puffed a dry little crusty right onto their paper.

That's right. I shot a booger on a kid's composition. Try to play that one off. Bygones.
