Leave Him To His Merry-Go-Round Mind

, | Learning | October 4, 2013

(I am student-teaching at a local elementary school. While supervising recess one day, a second-grade boy approaches him.)

Me: “Hey! What’s up?”

Kid: “How many kids would it take to lift you onto the merry-go-round, tie you down, and spin you until your brain exploded?”

Me: “Uh… I don’t know. Why?”

Kid: *ponders for a second* “It would probably take 10,000 of us.”

(The kid trots away contentedly, leaving me to wonder what is going on in his head.)
