Student Evaluations

In my student evaluations from a class last semester I found the following two comments back-to-back:
He makes class more fun through his voice expressions and overall demeanor.
His monotone voice created such a doldrom environment that made me want to cease to exist.
Without having to get into a question of whether I'm an exciting speaker or not, could these two students have been sitting in the same classroom? That said, a thank you to the first student. If I hadn't seen that comment right before I found I had the power to make people want to cease to exist, I would have been depressed for a week. Now I just feel disappointed I couldn't talk to the second student for longer.
