One of the things I love best about teaching little kids is that they simply speak their minds and have a natural sense of timing when it comes to comedy. Every year that I have taught I have had one or two students that are just better at this than most. This year I have one such student. This child is calm, cool, collected and simply funny. As my teacher friend commented when I told her the story: this kid has a big person's sense of humour in a little body!
Here is what happened today with my little straight-faced comedian:
Kid: Can I ask you something?
Me: Of course.
Kid: CAN you have kids? (this comes DAYS after my class asked me if I had any children of my own)
Me: Sure, I can if I want them and maybe if I have a husband. (Turkish society is a little more conservative)
Kid: Do you WANT a husband?
Me: Sure... that would be nice...
Kid: Well... are you even TRYING to find one?!
Me: uh... HAHAHAHAHA
I couldn't keep it together... this kid cracks me up on the daily, but this one had me in tears... I love my job on days like this!!!!
