In-Classifying

The students in my first class today are presently working on an in-class writing assignment:
What are your cultural taste preferences? How have they changed over the years?
In discussing how they should respond to the second question, I told them, "Say you used to be really into unicorns." Then, after a long pause, I added, "And now you are into antelopes. That's something you need to tell me." I also gave the example of a hypothetical student who felt it was time to abandon a teenage fixation on the Jonas Brothers. And I made my gratuitous Hannah Montana reference for the day. As cpratt inspired me to declare, "Go me!"
