YAY I got my computer back!!!!
Well now I'm back I want to wish you all a Wonderful peace filled Christmas, and pray you all know the true Joy of this season.
I had a fab conversation with a kid at school the other day and I just gotta share it lol.
I have a habit of using words in conversation which I KNOW they won't understand and when they ask what it means I say "Go look it up"
Apart from winding them up which is always fun, this increases their vocabulary and helps the word stay in their long term memory. Anyway I used the word "Delinquent" with this lad in year 10 (Age 15 for my American friends) he found it means someone who flouts the law or doesn't pay his debts.
2 weeks later he came to me and said "Miss, we are all delinquents!"
I was confused and asked him how he had worked that out, and he proudly said "Because we all owe a debt to God and cannot pay it!"
I was gobsmacked! and so would you be if you knew this lad lol.
My reply after I picked my jaw up off the floor was "Thats why I thank God for Easter! and it sparked off a great conversation on how God had remedied that very problem.
Oh I love my job!!
