Yesterday, during a lesson, Lenny raised his hand. He didn’t shout out and so, even though I wasn't looking for an answer, I called on him.

“Lenny, do you have a question?” I asked.

“Yesterday, I went to the doctor and got TWO shots,” he began.

Clearly he didn’t have a question, but he was also speaking quickly, on a roll, and had a sweet smirk, like the punch line to a joke was coming.

“BUT, even though I got two shots, I got THREE stickers!” He finished.

I glanced over at Mrs. D. and she smiled at me. The ball was in my court.

“Well, that’s a pretty good ratio,” I replied.

Lenny smiled and we continued with our lesson.
