Eighth Grade Student Rescues Spaced-Out Teacher

My husband was exiting his principal's office yesterday afternoon and absent-mindedly turned to go into the restroom.  Both the ladies' and the men's restroom doors are side-by-side in a little squishy hallway.  As he pushed upon the door, one of his male 8th grade students who is 7" taller than he and loves basketball made a loud, high-pitched scream and tackled my husband in a bear hug, pulling him away from the door.  After the shock wore off, my husband realized that he had just been saved from entering the women's restroom.  (That is a faux pas.  Big time.)  They both laughed and my hubby thanked his student profusely.  The student was definitely in the right place at the right time.
