Student Council wanna be

Ok, so our high school has this weird thing where it doesn't let anyone know who the student council assistant sponsor is. I dont' know if it is intentional or by chance. When there is a new stuco sponsor, a nice email is sent out letting everyone know. On the master schedule sent to everyone, the student council sponsor shows "student council" for fourth period.

However, the assistant gets no recognition. Nothing on the master schedule, no announcement. It's not a big deal except this morning got a little awkward. Why, you ask? Let me tell you.

Student Council did a teacher appreciation breakfast. We set the food up, and the line of teachers began strolling through to get their "thanks for being teachers" breakfast. JH, sponsor, and Me, assistant sponsor stood near the table thanking people etc. As they would come through, multiple teachers turned to JH and said, "Thank you so much." Totally ignoring me. Now, I might think that I had actually managed to offend that many people except that many of them I did not know at all. It wasn't a rude ignoring of me, it was a not sure what to do with the girl standing beside the student council sponsor kind of ignoring.

As I stood there I started thinking, "Why do they think I am standing here?" Do they think I'm trailing JH for the fun of it? Secret affair? Puppy love? No other friends?

It's weird. That's all I'm saying.
