We read West African proverbs today in class. I then had the kids illustrate the literal and figurative meanings of the proverbs.
Kid: Mrs. Revis! Mrs. Revis! Come look at my drawing!
Kid shows me a drawing. His proverb was, essentially, about avoiding danger.
Me: OK, I see where you're going with this. That guy's running away from this guy with a gun, and this one with a knife. But what is this girl holding?
Kid: A hanger.
In the kid's defense, it totally looks like a hanger. I just could not tell how a hanger would mean danger for a person.
Me: Why is the girl chasing the guy with a hanger in her hand?
Kid: Cause she wants to hang him!
I love that. *big smile* It reminds me, though, of something kind of pathetic--the Raggedy Ann picture of her with the stuffing removed and her limp, cloth body hanging to dry on the line.
Thanks for the laugh!!
Lol, I love it! :D
Heehee.. Well, in the kid's defense, it is actually possible to strangle someone with a hanger. (Though I imagine it would be difficult, especially with a plastic one.)
Thanks for the laugh!
Oh, I do love these posts!!!
Thanks for the fun post!
All the best,
This is why I love kids. That is GREAT!
That kid has a great sense of humor! I love him!! :) Give that kid an A for the year! :)
Love it! ;)
My kids and I have been dying laughing at this one and some of the recent ones. It helped lighten the day's mood with all this rain.
