X-rays don’t talk

8 May

I bet you knew that though.  Apparently I didn’t. 

Here’s the evidence:

Scene and characters:  Wednesday morning, art table, child with broken collar bone, obviously blonde teacher

Child: Teacher, I had to get another x-ray.

Me: Oh, really?

Child:  They took a picture and put it on the computer.

Me:  Wow!  What did the x-ray tell the doctors?

Child:  Nothing.

Another Child:  Teacher, x-rays don’t talk.  (First child nods head in agreement.)

And yet I know the difference between *quiescently and quintessential. 

I love 4 and 5 year olds.

    Actually x-rays do talk if you listen very carefully. 😉

    My four year old grandson told me recently that I could be tough if I grew some hair on my arms. His brother is seven, and they keep me laughing.
