March 24, 2021 ~ Cliché Or Not?

I stood in front of the room discussing the definition of clichés. We were working on developing more complex theme statements. The clichés bounced around the room.

‘Life is hard.’

‘Be kind.’

B shot his hand straight up in the air struggling to keep his bottom in his seat.

“Yes, B, what is a cliché that you have heard?” I asked

“Butter my butt and call me a biscuit!” he answered with volume and pride.

The room erupted! I had no words. The kids looked at me. I looked back at them.

We laughed and laughed and laughed.

“No, B, that is not a cliché , but it definitely is funny!”

These moments are the ones that remind me that through all the hard things, these kids truly are the best!
