The Nickel And Crime

| Learning | December 10, 2015

(The room I have Spanish class in has a nickel stuck into one of the ceiling panels, and one day I walk in to see my tallest classmate standing under it and jumping, trying to grab it. He is successful, and heads to his seat as those of us who are already in the room applaud him. The teacher and the rest of the class arrive, and we get to business. However, not long into the period, the teacher speaks up.)

Teacher: “What happened to the nickel?”

Tall Student: “I took it!”

Teacher: “Well… put it back!”

(And so, amid much laughter, the tall student lay across a desk and began flinging the nickel at the ceiling until it got stuck again.)
