|I hope they change their minds about these I am Not Lost Fingers!|
This year after I passed the fingers out and told them what they were for I got this question that NO ONE has ever asked in all the years I've been teaching... "Can we pick our noses with this?" The thing that I think is quite funny in this question is that all eyes were on me and looking at me quite seriously. There wasn't a smirk or a giggle in the crowd. They wanted to know if they could use these to pick their noses with....Sigh! What I love about this question is that it was so honest. I feel so honored that this little guy thought that he could ask me anything without feeling embarrassed or afraid of my reaction. It was hard to suppress the giggles that tried to escape, but I was able to keep a straight face and say, "No."
I wish "no" had been the end of it. Someone else asked if they could take it home at the end of the year. I said I wasn't sure. He replied, "If I get to take it home, the first thing I'll do with it is pick my nose." How can you not love a job where you get to spend the whole day with such delightful and funny people!
