While I was giving directions in class on Friday, I noticed that one of my students wasn’t listening to me because he was grabbing all the stomach fat he has, with both hands, and shaking it up and down. No one else had noticed him, and I don’t even think he realized he was doing it. When he looked up at me and noticed my “what on EARTH are you up to while I’m teaching?” look, he looked down at his hands and finally processed what he was doing.
Of course, instead of stopping or being embarrassed, he looked back up at me and grinned. He shook his fat a couple more times and said, “Sometimes, it talks to me. Grrrrrrrrrrrr!” (shakeshakeshake.)
I died. I was laughing so hard in front of my class that it took me a few minutes to get back under control. Kids say the darndest things.
