Treefrog Posted November 12, 2004 Report Share Posted November 12, 2004 I teach 10-year-olds in school. Today, I struck up a conversation with one of my students -- a pretty traditional and reserved boy. "Gee, M__________, you look really flexible. Have you ever thought about trying ballet?" The lad stammers, his friend snickers. "Gosh," I say, all innocence, "what's wrong with that?" "Well, um, you know ...." "No, I don't really know. Anyway, I went to see the Bolshoi Ballet last night. They had these guys that could jump really high. And they did three or four turns at the same time!" Silence. Then (from both boys simultaneously): "Really? That's cool! How high did they jump?"
