as i was redirecting a student on the carpet today, reminding him to keep his hands to himself and to put his eyes on the teacher he leaned in as close as he could get to me. i instinctively pulled away and he said, "hey! i want to smell your mouth!"
"i want to smell your mouth. it smells like my mommy's mouth. mmmm"
ok, clearly mommy also drinks coffee and eats goldfish, neither of which i associate as good smells. secondly, does nothing flash through your head that you are currently in trouble right now and that it might not be a good time to try to smell your teacher's mouth?? or is this all diversionary tactics used so well by magicians.
