last week I had the honor & pleasure of chaperoning the middle school winter dance
I was helping one of my students get her permission slip when we had the following conversation:
me: "wow, those are some pretty crazy heels you have on"
student: "yeah, I never get to wear them, they are pretty hard to walk in"
me: "so you thought you should wear them to a dance?"
student: "well yeah Mrs. Lewis, because students don't really pick up their feet anymore while dancing, they pick up their butts"
me: "oh, I see. how silly of me."
You learn something new everyday, especially if you teach middle school.
