Here's an excerpt from a convo with one of my students this morning.
Kid #1- “Mrs. Whigham, have you ever eaten a worm?”
Me- “Um, nope. Only a gummy worm. Why? Have you?”
Kid #1- “Yep. Once when I was 6, my sister told me to eat a worm and I did. It was one of those big fat ones, too.”
Kid #2- “Did you swallow it or chew it?”
Kid #1- “Ewe! I chewed it! If not, it would have been living in my stomach because worms have 9 lives.”
Me- “What?!?!!? It’s cats that have 9 lives and what are you talking about?” (giggle, giggle, giggle)
I mean, how can you not love coming to work when you get to listen to stuff like that all day!
