Usually when you talk to students at my school about their plans for a break, you hear about going to the park to play, staying overnight with cousins, parties, or maybe a short trip. So I was surprised by the answer I heard to the question today:
Me: Do you have any special plans for break?
Student: Umm, my mom is going to try to find some agents.
Me: (Puzzled look…speechless)
Student: Yea, I went to a Disney audition. I made it through #1, and I made it through #2…but we missed #3. You had to pay $1,000 to go to New York. So my mom is trying to find a new agent.
Me: (stuttering in surprise) Wow, good luck!
I still am shaking my head over that exchange. Guess it will go down as a memorable moment. You never know what kids might say!
