You Can't, You Won't

Some of my lovely students conned me into playing on their ultimate frisbee team for a recess tournament. They did this in a classic way.

"Hey, Ms. W.," they said sweetly, "will you play on our team?" 

"Oh, I don't know," I said, shaking my head.

"Please!" they persisted.  "It'll be us three, Ms. F. [my good pal], and you."

"Ms. F. already AGREED to play?" I clarified.

"Yes!" they said, encouragingly.

"Fine," I said.

Is it ANY surprise to ANYONE that they totally LIED to me?

So now, I've been playing ultimate stupid frisbee during my free recesses.  It's ridiculous.  We're in the losers' bracket, where we belong.
