When we arrived at school today, and waited for the school to open its doors, Donovan, a fifth grade boy, came dashing up from the back of the bus, i-pod in tow.
“Mrs. Mileti, you have to listen to this song! It’s so awesome!” He said.
“What’s the name of the song?” I asked
“Just listen, it’s the best!”
Donovan pushed play though nothing appeared to be happening. I could not hear the song immediately. Donovan worked on turning the volume up so the song could be heard. I must say I was taken a back when I recognized the tune emanating from his i-pod. I certainly was not expecting to hear the, Bee Gee’s Stayin Alive. I asked Donovan if that was his favorite song. He said, no, that he just really liked the song. I then proceeded to ask him what his favorite song was.
“Picking a favorite song, is like picking a favorite child. You just can’t do that.” He replied.
His reply really put a smile on my face. I just love their blunt honesty…well…most of the time, anyway. 😉
