He’s Not Dead But There’s Still A Twister At The End

| Learning | December 6, 2013

(I am teaching a class of third-graders about tornadoes. I show a picture I took when I went on a tornado chase in college. One of the students raises her hand.)

Student: “Mr. [Name], when you went tornado chasing, did you die?”

(Most of the class starts laughing.)

Me: “[Student’s Name], come up here.”

(The student walks up and stands in front of me.)

Me: “Now put your hands here.”

(The student puts her hands on my stomach and starts patting my belly.)

Me: “Do I feel like a ghost to you?”

Student: “Umm… no?”

Me: “Didn’t think so. Now go sit back down. Thank you.”
