Teen Issues

Out of the blue today, my student confessed, "I was high when I was practicing yesterday, and I knew it, but I wasn't sure what to do."

"High?!" I exclaimed, shocked and sickened by this revelation. Confidentially, I leaned toward her and lowered my voice. "Oh dear, what were you on?"

She paused in confusion for a moment before a light bulb went on. She explained, "No no, I mean I was high--you know, sharp!"

LOL - so much for the precision of language. But, would you have made the correct guess from "too high" ;-)

Always in need of a good laugh,

That is very, very funny. I think I will get a lot of laughter mileage in telling that story to others. Thanks for sharing that :). On an interesting side not though, from what I remember, In the song, A Day in the Life by the Beatles, the Beatles actually had the orchestra brought in for recording become a little intoxicated to produce the desired effect on the album.

Kids say the darndest things, as Art Linkletter said, and we only compound that phenom by the assumptions we make. Thanks for sharing.
