Bird on a Bare Branch

Attempting to fling a frail song in my little corner of the world

On Friday I was sitting at my back table with a student working on his autobiography.  He had filled in a questionnaire and now needed to rewrite his answers as sentences.  I read the question, “How old are you?”  He said, “Eight.”  I asked him how he would say that in a complete sentence.  He had no clue.  To model it to him, I said, “Okay, you ask me.”  So he asked, “How old are you?”  I said, “I am 32.  How old are you?” At this point, I noticed other students nearby perking up their ears because up until then no one had ever asked me how old I was.  One student who was passing by said, “Daaaaang, Ms. Hubers!”  I said, “Whaaaaat, C.?”  He replied, shaking his head, “You OOOOOld!”
