The Pen Is Mightier Than Her Brain

| Learning | December 30, 2013

(My mother is an elementary school teacher. She has asked one of the smallest kids in the class to point to something on the board. The little girl goes up to the board, but she can’t reach it. My mother hands her a pen, so that she can use it to point.)

Mom: “Here, sweetie. Use this.”

(The little girl takes the pen and looks confused for a moment. Then she sets it down on the floor and stands on it.)

Student: “This doesn’t help!”
