Oh, boy.

I emailed many of you this story, but in case you didn't get my email, here's my funny story from yesterday:

My juniors read story from  the Puritan time period called Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. The story  is full of excellent, descriptive imagery, so to do something different, I had  them pick 5 elements and draw them together in a picture. A boy turned his in, and there was a picture of a raft. Here’s our conversation:

Me:  “Why is there a raft on here?”

Boy: “You know, God’s raft”

Me:  “What? There is no raft in the story.”

Boy: “Yes, there is. God’s  raft.”

****Lightbulb goes off in my head*******

Me: “Oh, you  mean God’s WRATH.”

Boy: “Yes, God’s raft.”
