Student: Want to hear something gross?
Me: Uh...not really...but I have a feeling you're going to tell me anyway...
Student: It's about me, don't worry. So, as you can tell, this *holds up water bottle full of a liquid* is full of grape drink [it was entirely not obvious to me that it wasn't just a dark, opaque water bottle...]. After gym class today, I went to take a drink, and when I did, THERE WAS A CENTIPEDE IN MY MOUTH! I ALMOST ATE A CENTIPEDE! It was nasty. I decided I'm not going to drink out of my water bottle anymore until there's a clear liquid in it.
I have been teaching music across the Twin Cities since 2011. Along with seeing students grow as musicians and people, one of the joys of teaching is the ridiculous things my students say.
