Oh the things he says...

J-Man had been having a rough morning with focusing and keeping his hands to himself, so on the way to lunch he and his teacher, Ms. Corrigan, had the following conversation...

Ms. C: J, you need to have a really great lunch and get yourself under control because your mom is coming to take you to the book fair this afternoon, and you won't be able to go if you can't control yourself.

J: Yes, Ma'am (as he straightend his back a bit and thought)

J: But, what if someone makes an angry face at me?

Ms. C: Well, I wouldn't like it if someone made an angry face at me, so what is something you could do if that happens?

J: I could move?

Ms. C: Yes, you could move. What else could you do? You could use your...

J: Manners!

Ms. C: Yes, you could use your manners. You could also use your...

J: Words!!!

Ms. C: That is right! You could use your words.

J: I could use my words, just like Martin Luther King did!

Ms. C: Yes, that is great. I love that you are remembering something that we talked about earlier in the year. You can use your words just like Martin Luther King.

J (walking off and mumbling to himself): I could use my words just like Martin Luther King... but, he got shot!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!
