How Deep Do You Want It?

Me:”Who thinks they have a handle on the next idea? Any deep thoughts out there?”

Young Man Who Often Rambles Before He Gets to the Point: “I don’t know how deep this is, but I’ve got an idea.”

Me:”Ok, go for it.”

Young Man Who Often Rambles Before He Gets to the Point: “How deep do you want this?”

The first snickers start from across the room.

Me ignoring the snickers and hoping to maintain some classroom control: “Ummm just share what you wrote please. ”

Young Man Who Often Rambles Before He Gets to the Point: “Ok, I’m going deep. Tell me when to stop.”

It’s a class of 22 boys and 6 exasperated girls during the last period of the day. There was no hope of control.

Me:”I’m calling all of your mothers!”
