Odds and Ends

Todd the Terrible (8 years old) told me that he's been thinking about joining the army. He also said, "I used to want to lose both my legs because I think wheelchairs are cool. But now I think only one leg would be good.

Gertrude the Gullible: She likes trills, but she can never get the name right and always calls them "frills." I told her to avoid the "endless trill" because the man who invented it is still playing. I also told her not to press the middle pedal otherwise the piano would explode, and the anonymous Minuet she was playing was actually written by Bob. I always separate truth from fiction afterwards.

Stefan: Once again, his homework was not done because "he nearly stopped breathing that week." He had had a terrific fall into some ice on his stomach that caused him great pain. Luckily, he didn't have to go to the hospital.
