    Yeah… I never quite got that one, and it kinda hurts my feelings. Only those who can do can teach. The others might talk, but no one will learn anything.

    Exactly, mandalas are for everyone. My students like them, too. They’re great after a test or at the end of a long day. Even the 11-year-old boys ask for them.

    I like fried okra, too, although I’d never seen or heard of it before I went to live Florida. I can understand why some wouldn’t like it, though. I guess you either love it or hate it :-)

    Add cyclists to that. I get around in any of the three ways and am sure glad I know how the others’ brains work at any given moment.

    That’s the problem with these road-rage people: They think that they can “educate” all the others.
    Anyway, I ain’t never seen road rage in North America like we have here in Buenos Aires. It’s the default way to drive!

    Yes, they do. I apply the same system with my students. And if they argue, I’m happy to tell them that my classroom is NOT a democracy.

    Side note for teachers: I also recently discovered the Hogwarts-house idea. They all play in groups for a prize and if someone messed up, the whole group gets points taken off. At age 11, that works quite nicely. I haven’t had to write a discipline slip in weeks :-)

    And if it didn’t take all kinds, we wouldn’t have all kinds. It’s called evolution ;-)

    At least they’re communicating quietly. Our neighbors shout to each other whenever they want something, instead of just going over to where the other one is. The other day their house caught fire and we didn’t notice for five minutes – there was just the level of shouting we’re already used to.

    Coward! The mothers can never simply take off.

    Take the kid along! Not because he can’t stay home by himself, but because he might actually learn something!
