WARNING: R-Rated Post
I was alone in my classroom reading this from one of my new third graders and dying to share it with someone. This little gal made three very funny mistakes right on top of each other...each a little more shocking than the last.
I often have to translate students' experimental spellings in my mind as I read. My thought process as I read this went something like:
You are a nice teacher.
You are smart.
You are cool.
You are fun.
Aww. What a sweetie.
Do you like...touching kids?
Um, that's awkward. Does she mean hugging them maybe?
Do you like...whores?!
Do you like to...ride whores??!
OH. MY. GOSH!
It was at this point that I dropped the letter and laughed out loud for a minute straight. I mean, obviously, she wasn't meaning to say those things. In case you are wondering, I'm pretty sure the correct translation is something more like:
Do you like TEACHING kids?
Do you like HORSES?
Do you like to ride HORSES?
Nonetheless, this is one letter I will be keeping forever.
