We were getting ready to do the activity called, "Tell Me About The Time You..." where the kids tell fictional tales about themselves, like: Tell me about the time you fell into a pool filled with sharks.
I was trying to give an example so I needed one of the kids to give me one to do. I asked Ish (pronounced like ice but with the "sh" sound--she happens to be part of the St. Paul family) to give me an example:
MR. BOWERS: OK, Ish, ask me to tell you about something that you know I have never done...come on, look at me and think of something that you know I have never done before...come on, give me one--
I talked to her later and let her know that I appreciated her sense of humor, but that she needs to be careful not to be disrespectful. She apologized. She burned me fo sho!
