I've decided to start a new blog series about convos I have with my students. I *heart* them and I hope you find them as entertaining as I do. Today's installment happened today...and it just happens to be about running.
Andrew: Aw, maaaaaan! I hope we don't have to run outside today for P.E. It's raining and I just had my braids re-done.
Me: Come on Andrew! It's not that bad. I ran in the rain this morning! It can be fun!
Julia: Did you run a marathon?
Me: No, Julia I just ran 3 miles. I would have to get up at 2 a.m. to run a marathon before work.
Andrew: Doesn't your hair get ruined in the rain?
Me: No, my hair is different than yours.
Andrew: Oh. G, how long is a marathon?
Me: 26.2 miles
Andrew: Aw.....HEEELLLLL NO!
Me: Andrew, language.
Andrew: I I I I I'm sorry G, my bad. (Andrew stutters horribly when he gets excited). What's the longest you've ever run?
Me: 26.2 miles
Andrew: Is is is is tttthat like from here to Alton?
Me: No. It's farther.
Julia, Andrew, and Bijon: AWWWWW....HELLLLL NO!
Andrew: Ssssorry G. Sssso how far is it then?
Me: It would be about the same as running to the mall from here...
Andrew: NO WAY!!! G, THAT'S CRAZY!!!
Me: Wait, Andrew...I didn't finish. It's like running from here to the mall AND back...plus a few more blocks.
Andrew: AND BBBBACK? Oh, no. Oh no. Oh no. I could never do that G. You're going to live forever G.
