Substitue Chronicles #2456

Today I subbed for 1st grade.

Ben and I were having reading "group" today. Just he and I because %50 of the group was sick. The class was getting loud so I said...

“I don’t want to hear an ounce of talking.”

Ben replied...

“You can’t measure talking in ounces.”

He never looked up from his book.

Jen you are such a writer...some things never change! I can just see Ben sitting there. Sorry we haven't communicated in a long time. We are doing fine. We will call you back!! We are bad friends, we know.

God bless you Jenn. Just when I'm in a pitiful mood, I surf onto your site and am blessed with my one true gut laugh for the day. Thank you much!

That Ben is a smart kid. I don't know that I would have caught that (the sound/ounces bit).
