//there was a vocab quiz scheduled for the last few minutes of class in AP Lit
Tad: "Ms. O'Connor, if I show you my stuffed animals can we not have the quiz today?"
Ms. O'Connor (laughing): "Well, you can show them."
Tad: *shows off stuffed animals*
//specifically Fighter the tiger, Grason the fox, and Squirrel the squirrel
Ms. O'Connor: "I love stuffed animals! Anyway, everybody head to canvas. We'll star-"
//about 30 seconds of silence
Tad (in chat): "Is she frozen?"
Dheeraj (in chat): "yes"
//another 10 seconds or so
*Zoom gives us a notice saying "the host has disconnected."*
//another minute or so
*Ms. O'Connor reconnects, joins the call, and lets us all back in. The class bursts out laughing.*
Ms. O'Connor: "That was some Harry Potter stuff."
*Tad holds up Lord Bawk Bawk the chicken*
Tad: "Bawk! Bawk! Bawk! BAWK!!!"
Tad: "I warned you. I warned you Ms. O'Connor, and you doubted me. You shouldn't have done that!"
Ms. O'Connor: "OK, so there won't be a quiz today after all."
Tad (holding up Lord Bawk Bawk again): "BAWK BAWK BAWK BAWK BAWK!"
