Kids Say the Darndest Things

Is that how you spell darndest?? Anyways- today in class one of my students had me cracking up laughing. Our conversation follows:

Me: Darlings- you are all crowding me a bit. I am feeling a little claustrophobic.
Max: Does that mean you are afraid of Santa CLAUS?

Poor guy was being serious. It ended up leading to a super conversation about phobias but his original, smart, yet funny comment is the part I enjoyed the most. I love my job!
