The Comeback Kid

     So glad it's Thursday.  My brain has been on empty for the past couple of days.  Teaching sixth graders can do that to you, ya know?  Yesterday, one of my kiddos asked me how to spell a word.  I don't remember what the word was (see comment about brain being empty), but, like always, I told him, "I don't know." (I say this to encourage them to use phonetics and a dictionary, neither of which they like to use, by the way.)  Well, this one didn't take my answer lying down and like most of my kids, he had a comeback. 
     "How can you be a teacher and you don't know how to spell (the word)?  Don't you have to take a test to be a teacher?" 
     My brain may have been empty, but I'm pretty quick with the comebacks myself.  So, I responded:
     "Well, yes, I took a test, but that word wasn't on it!"

Hope you have a l'il laugh and a great evening!  Onward and forward to Friday!
