Recent conversation I had with a visiting former student. He saw the backdrop on my computer screen…
…then he got excited…
Former Student: Teacher Gilbert, is that your house?
Me: Ummm, what do you think?
Former Student: You live on a whale?
Me: (mischievous eyes) … … sure.
Former Student: Did you walk from your house?
Me: Well, I can’t walk because there is all the water. (Pointing to ocean) See?
Former Student: Then how did you get to school?
Me: … … I took a boat.
Former Student: Really???
Me: Okay, no. I don’t live there.
Former Student: Awwww, that would have been so cool. You gotta talk to the person who lives there and get the house.
Me: Ummm… … okay?
Former Student: (smiles and walks away)
Don’t worry. I’ll straighten out the story the next time I see him. In the meantime, I’m making phone calls to my real estate agent 🙂
