I Get Email


Two of my fellow Associates at the Largo Wal-Mart email each other. Marci will forward some items she gets from Lewis. This is one of them:
A first grade school teacher in Virginia had twenty-five students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.

It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

1. Don't change horses......... until they stop running.

LOL! They made me laugh too, Benning. All of them were good. Hard to believe a sixth-grader came up with that last one. Makes you wonder if she has an older sister and overheard a mother-daughter talk, or worse, the sister got pregnant. Let's hope for the first! :)

Oh... shameless plug here: If you watch 24 stop by this week's Fractured Friday. You can stop by even if you don't watch 24... haven't seen you in awhile!
