Because I'm human, I have an all-time favorite student. He's not in my current class, but he has helped me compile probably half of my journal entries thus far. What a great kid! I used to ask him questions just to see what he'd say because he was so sure of himself, whether right or wrong. Here was our conversation one day:
He said, "My grandpa has to get surgery, but he doesn't have insurance."
Just to see what he thought, I said, "What's insurance for?"
His reply: "It covers up expensive stuff."
