While I'm here, I'm teaching my three oldest nephews English. Besides the expected agonizing over personal pronouns, improper use of adjectives, and continual harassment about punctuation... I get a few amusing incidents every now and then that make it all worth while.
For instance, David's latest question and answer paper, the ever-popular, What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?
David answered "A snitzel stick man."
The next question was "Why?"
David answered, "Because it's funny, and yummy, and to make money."
The next question was "How can you prepare for this job?"
David's answer? "Buy a snitzel truck and snitzel sticks."
Moral of the story? Not every child wants to be a firefighter, a nurse, or a pilot. And that's okay. If our aspirations aren't big, at least they're colorful.
