How to AVOID becoming an adult. (By Jack.)

The word "adult" is thrown around the classroom a gazillion times a day.

If someone hurts you, find an adult.

If someone hurts someone ELSE, find an adult.

If you don't know what to do, ask an adult.

If you see an adult you don't know on the playground, find an adult you DO know and tell them.

Today during learning centers I overheard Jack talking to our intern,  Ms. Adorable.  She must have said SOMETHING with the word adult in it, because I heard him laugh.

His legs were crossed as he worked on his word work paper.  "Ms. Adorable, you are NOT an adult." he said in the voice of an eighty year-old man.

She looked at him, surprised, "Yes, I am!"

"No, I don't think so," he said shaking his head. "Let me ask you this, have you ever been to the Grand Canyon?

"Well, no." she said.

"Do you own a motorcycle?" he asked with raised eyebrows.

"Um, no."

"Do you know how to start a campfire without matches?"

"Well, no...." she replied.

"Are you 22 years-old yet?"

"No, I'm not."

Jack smiled.  "Okay!  Then you are definitely not an adult."

The world according to Jack.

Wow - I qualify as an adult on every level. Well, except the motorcycle. Although, I used to own one...before I was an adult.
