12-12-12 and A-ha MomentsWednesday, December 12, 2012
I can't not post on a special numbered day like this one.
12. 12. 12.
It won't happen again until 01-01-2101.
Pretty special day if you ask me!
Unfortunately nothing really special has happened today. Pretty normal actually.
I let my 5th hour watch the clock at 12:12 and they all cheered out loud then went back to work like nothing happened. I only wish I had video of that moment.
Today I taught my lovelies about the Mediterranean vegetation zone and a student asked how I knew that it was spelled with two "r"s. And I told them I remembered the same way I remember that Caribbean has two "b"s - because I would love 2 BE in the Caribbean all the time. Something I taught them when we studied the Caribbean about a month ago.
A student in the back piped up, "OHHHHH, now I get it!"
I couldn't help but laugh.Those little a-ha moments that make you smile. I then regaled them with my a-ha moment, the day I figured out how Burger King's Croissan'wich is actually pronounced. Even though I knew it was a breakfast sandwich on a croissant it never clicked with me that it was pronounced CRUH-SAN-WICH.
Whenever I saw it, I always said it in my head as CROW-ZIN-WICH.
And that a-ha moment may have only been about 5 years ago.
You got any a-ha moments that make you just want to smack your head now that you that you think about it? Make me feel less silly and share yours!
