My 2nd-grade piano student has a running joke that he orders his knuckle-pops in. So when he tries to crack his knuckles and they don't crack, he makes up a reason why. Today his knuckles didn't pop.
Student: They were coming on a bus. But the bus exploded on a famous bridge.
Me: The London Bridge?
Student: Probably. But, you know, it doesn't really matter which one. Just a famous one. And it was a double-decker bus too. I might have to switch companies.
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.
