"If all female teachers are Mother in Law........"

I spent the best part of my life in my school Little Flower school (LFS). It was a girls school, and most of the girls in my school were tomboys. Now we hardly used to come across guys as the school was situated in an isolated place high on the hills. Naturally we were very curious about guys and most of our talk used to revolve around them. If by any chance, a few girls knew a guy then the poor guy used to have a hard time. No we never did or say anything to the guy, but its just that we used to pair up any girl with that guy and tease them a lot. We used to have a blast doing that, without the poor guy having any clue about this.

Now there was this guy who was the son of one of our teacher (a Lady teacher). My friends used to pair me up with him and tease me. Poor guy, he had no clue about this!!!! One day when we were between periods, we were having a serious disucssion about mother in laws. Now it so happened that the very next period that Madam was supposed to take our Social Studies class. All my friends were picturing how she would look as my mother in law. We were busy discussing all this silly things, and she entered the class. It was after the lunch hour, so the whole class stood up and greeted her Good Afternoon

Now I don't know from were did some of my friends get this smart idea and few of them shouted "Good Afternoon Mother in Law". As luck would have it, she heard this and her response was "Who called me Mother in Law, please step forwad, or the entire class can keep on standing" All the grils were cursing us coz they all knew the direction from where this sound came and knew I was paired up with her son. Then two of my brave friends stepped forward and admitted that they were the culprits.

She called them to her desk and asked them what made them call her Mother in Law. One of my friend is real smart and came up with an answer that anyone in this world will have to digest, no matter how sure they are that this is not true. she just told Madam that we were disucssing about mother in law before she entered the class, and hence this SLIP OF TONGUE!!! Whew, she bought that and it was a lucky escape!!! That freind is a reputed doctor now and I hope none of her patients pull on a fast one like this on her!! I am not taking names here for everybody's sake. Poor guy will have a heart attack if he reads this, we used to be soooo good like angels when we were around him or his mother!!!

I think, no am certain she would not take the reality too well. Well,who would?? Imagine girls in her class teasing about her son and pairing the poor guy up with one gal and disucssing her merits and demerits as a potential mother in law. God Forbid.....She had a very good sense of humor and to diffuse the situation she asked the class "If you start calling all the female teachers Mother in Law, what would you call all the male teachers?" "Father in Law ", we shouted.

Next period our mathematics Sir was due to come in. The bell rang, she was getting ready to go out of the class. Just as she was reached the door , she saw Sir standing outside. Now just as one period gets over, there are lots of chaos and commotion in the class. She came back to her desk and said "Girls, be quiet one Father in Law is standing outside" We burst out laughing on hearing this. She was just so cool!!! It has been about 10 years and I have no clue where Madam is now. I know she is somewhere in Delhi, but........ I wish I could meet her some day, just to tell her how cool a teacher she used to be in those days.
