Random kid quote

2nd grader: “Irish jump high.

Me: “What?”

2nd grader: “Irish jump high.  Really, like from here to here” (demonstrates a space of about a foot with her hands)

Me: “Do you mean leprechauns or something like that?”

2nd grader: “No, Irish people.  They jump high!”

Me: (slightly incredulous that this is what my students are learning in their World Music class) How do you know that?

2nd grader: “‘Cause I learned it!”

It just goes to show that what you say to kids is not always what they understand and interpret it as. 

In other news, please pray that I get better soon…being sick and going to Seattle on Friday isn’t a good combination in my book.
