...and it has no hair on it.

While working on language processing with an 8 year old I asked him, "What does a minister do?" He looked at me and said he didn't know what a minister was. So I explained that this is the guy who either stands or sits at the front of the church and preaches. He looked at me and said, "Oh yeah. I have one at my church and it has no hair on it."

People Watching

While sitting and waiting for a client at a local public library... I witnessed a man walk straight into a beam because he was too preoccupied with watching a woman walk down the stairs.

I could hardly contain my laughter! :D

it was a compliment

Working with a 5 year old in therapy on articulation skills, he continued to whine and whine. After a while I stated, "I'm getting really sick of this whining." He responded, "It was a compliment."
