Kid quote - would you like some coffee with that?

The other day, Mr. Music (my teaching partner) asked our students to "please pay attention to their guiding spirit" - T
Those were his words, not mine. He was really asking the kids to stop talking and listen to me. I don't always know why Mr. Music says things preciscely the way that he does, but that is fodder for another blog....
so the little girl sitting right in front of me who was already paying attention very well wrinkled her nose and looked at Mr. Music and said the very words out loud that I was thinking in my head. She said, "Guiding spirit?" (aka what??)
In response Mr. Music pointed to me. When comprehension dawned and the little girl translated Mr. Music-ese into plain english, she turned to me and said, "Alright guiding spirit, can you get me a doughnut?!"

I thought it was funny
