A few months ago, a new little girl came to our class from another state.
I don't know why, but I still think of her as "the new girl."
It could be because of the fact that she's not quite like any of my other students.
Here are just a couple of instances from today that might prove my point.
Little girl: Mrs. Miller, I want you to know my butt is infected.
Little Girl: Yeah, I scraped my butt a couple days ago, and now its infected. I have to sit kinda weird now.
Me: I'm sorry to hear about that. I'm sure you'll be as good as new in the next few days.
2 minutes later...
Little Girl: I forgot to tell you something about my infected butt.
Me: (warily) What?
Little Girl: Its causing me to say things in magical voices. Sometimes that happens when you have an infected butt.
A few hours later...
Little girl: I hope it rains later tonight.
Me: You do, huh?
Little girl: Yeah. Because sometimes when it rains, I get superpowers and can see in the dark. But don't worry...its cool, not scary.
She says some of the strangest things! I'm chalking it up to the fact that she's an only child and therefore has to have a very active imagination. But it definitely allows for some laughs throughout the day!
