Lesson for today-received from friends in the UK

Do Your Homework

The 6th grade science teacher, Mrs. Parks, asked her class,'Which human body part increases to ten times its size when stimulated?'

No one answered until little Mary stood up and said, 'You should not be asking sixth graders a question like that! I'm going to tell my parents, and they will go and tell the Principal, who will then fire you!'

Mrs. Parks ignored her and asked the question again, 'Which body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?'

Little Mary's mouth fell open. Then she said to those around her, 'Boy, is she going to get in big trouble!'

The teacher continued to ignore her and said to the class, 'Anybody?'

Finally, Billy stood up, looked around nervously, and said, 'The body part that increases 10 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye.'

Mrs. Parks said, 'Very good, Billy,' then turned to Mary and continued.

'As for you, young lady, I have three things to say:
One, you have a dirty mind.
Two, you didn't read your homework.
And three, one day you are going to be very, VERY disappointed.'

You are absolutely right. The question was quite simple but it depends on a person's thinking and the way of replying. Wonderful post and its a lesson to learn. Person with a dirty mind can never think of good things.

That made me laugh out loud, Patty. Too bad you were picking up Audrey and didn't get to hear me laugh. Thanks for doing all you do for me and thanks too for doing all the extra stuff I can't do anymore. Like the grass you are cutting down for me and stuffing in big bags. Yes, next year we will have to cut it before winter. It should be a lot easier.
