The other day I was writing down my students' oral answers to history questions for them to copy. A few of them started to complain that they couldn't see and I started to get frustrated. Where was their patience?? (Where was mine?).
But then one of my boys said, "I wish you had really long stretchy arms so you could write on the board and be out of the way at the same time." (So they do realize the impossibility of me writing on the board and not being "in the way").
I replied, "Unfortunately I'm not one of the Incredibles."
And then another boy said, "Yes you are!" and clapped his hand over his mouth.
I thanked him and laughed. Does he have a crush on me?? Oh well, now I'm a Super!
