That Doesn't Count
All last week, the library was having a book fair. During the morning announcements, we were invited to go over and see what they had. We were told there were lots of great books to buy...
"Who buys books?" a student asked.
It was a special ed. English class. So, I kinda knew where the question came from. But still, I was speechless.
One of the students (not the student who asked) had a one-on-one aide. The aide said what I should have said...
"I buy books."
So, I seconded, saying that I buy books, too. Of course, this didn't count.
"Yeah, well, you're teachers..."
(We spent the week reading a simplified version of The Swiss Family Robinson. I probably don't have to mention that I had a group of reluctant readers.)
