Ever had someone say something that was just so unbelievable all you could do was stare?
I've had a couple of those moments today. You know the ones I'm talking about, the ones where you wonder you look at the person and wonder where the body snatcher's pod is? I call them excuse-me-while-I-pick-my-jaw-up-off-the-ground moments. The first was when someone made some comments about himself/herself that are completely at odds with how that person normally behaves. Definite body snatcher moment. The other involved one of those fabulous teaching moments when you've gone over every possible angle of an assignment and a kid looks at you and says, "Now what are we supposed to do?"
At that point, you know the kid wasn't listening. Maybe this cool article explains why. It's not that I'd ever be a boring teacher who rambles on and on and . . .
Where was I?
Oh, yes, did you know it's possible to be too poor to file bankruptcy?
Or that it's possible to be almost impossibly smart? These guys prove it. I can't get my mind wrapped around what they did (heck, I can't understand half the terminology, but it's a neat article.)
Oh, and dealing with stress? I'm doomed. Although I felt really sorry for the poor juvenile mouse that had to experience all the stress. Maybe it can go live with Larissa. But doesn't the description of how the poor young rat was treated sound like high school?
Yes, I'm definitely rambling. Is your mind wandering yet?
