“Boys and girls, today is the last day of working in our handwriting books! We’re finishing up with the letter X!”
After a brief discussion about all that is x, I asked what they thought they could draw that might have an “x” in it. ( I was looking for an answer like, oh, box, or perhaps even fox. Silly me.)
The children stared at me blankly, until Sasha raised her hand. “Oh, I know, girl. EX-husband.”
“You heard me. I said EX-husband. You know; YOU have one.” She said as she crossed her arms.
“Well, um, that’s true…but I’m not sure I’d want to DRAW him. Let’s just stick with THINGS. Things like boxes or foxes, all right? Okay..."
“Girl, some days you are NO fun.” Sasha said with a shake of her head.
(And that is one girl I will never, ever forget.)
