Artie is one of the most entertaining students I have ever had. He is constantly coming up with blog-worthy comments, as he has a flare for the dramatic and a great sense of humor (when he's in a good mood). His vocabulary is advanced, and whether he's angry or happy, he's always making people laugh (intentionally or otherwise). Today, in a crabby mood, on the way from one class to another, he randomly lamented,
"Why does everyone but me have a lucky day?!"
"What?! You've never had a lucky day?! Are you sure?"
"Yes! It always ends tragically!"
I put my arm around him and teased, "Artie, I can't believe you don't remember the lucky day you had just weeks ago--The day you got me as a teacher, remember?!"
An eye-roll was his response, believe it or not.haha
