Head Spinning

Two kid anecdotes:

First, Mac announced to me last night that he has two jobs on Friday.

"What are they?" I asked.

"Well, Kendall and I were talking about Cool 2," he said.  Cool 2 is their band.

"Oh yeah?" I prompted.

"Yeah," Mac said. "And we decided we need a bodyguard."  The Cool 2 has decided a lot of things.  They've decided to graduate early from college and move to Turks and Caicos, for instance.  And also to start a science club.   "And on Friday, I have to do two things," Mac continued.  "First, I have to tell Henry that Kendall is in love with him.  And then, I have to ask him to be our bodyguard."

"Why Friday?" I asked.

"Because Kendall won't be at school," Mac said.  "So I can tell Henry that she loves him when she's not there."

Second anecdote: Shef's trying to improve his mile time from 6:19.

"How do I go faster?" he asked.

"Well," I said.  "You pretty much have to run until you think you might throw up or die.  Even if you feel bad.  You won't actually die.  Just keep pushing it."

"Until I throw up?"

"Yeah," I said, nodding.  Unfortunately, I know from personal experience that this is how you run as fast as you can.

I love hearing about what's going on behind the scenes with students. Mac is getting the job done for his pals.
