So there was this dad reading to the kids at kindergarten the other day, and he was about to read a poem about collections. I loved what happened during the discussion.
Dad: Does anyone here have any collections at home?
Leo: I do!
Dad: What do you collect?
Dad: Money! Wow. I think we all wish we had a collection of that, am I right? Who else collects something?
Girl: I do. I collect wocks.
Dad, a little confused: Oh…so you collect walks?
Girl: No, wocks.
Dad: Oh, excuse me. You collect locks. That’s really neat!
Whole class: No, WOCKS! WWWWWOCKS!
Rocks. She collects rocks. I just love how the entire class of kindergarteners tried to help, but their collective voice has a speech impediment.
I think if I ever go back to teaching, I’m going to have to go for kindergarten. The comedy level is off the charts there.
WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
Leftovers, from chicken curry to honey plum ribs.
