The teacher purchased cookie dough from a fund-raising group at school.
The prodigy noticed the cookie dough sitting in the freezer and asked, “Are you going to make cookies this weekend?”
The teacher sighed and replied, “Probably not this weekend.”
The prodigy quickly asked, “Are you sure?, It’s a long weekend.”
The teacher made cookies!
Last weekend the teacher & I decided to go see a movie. As usual, we invited the prodigy to join us, but he declined.
I remembered something I needed to do while I was getting ready and I walked by his room in my underwear.
He spotted me and asked, “Are you going to the movie like that?”
“No.” I replied, “But is that why you are not going?”
He smirked, “No, but that would be a reason not to go.”
The contingency plan, the data backup and the second string quarterback are alternates or replacements, also known as “backup” if something happens to the original. My dad is the ultimate in preparedness because no matter the situation he always has a backup. In fact, my dad is so prepared he has a backup for the backup.
The teacher badgered the prodigy, “What do you want for Christmas?”
“Nothing.“, responded the prodigy.
The teacher clapped her hands together and exclaimed, “Get me a list!”
The prodigy responded, “I want a nicer mom.”
