And my anecdote of ignunce for the day…
There’s a girl in my speech and debate class who doesn’t know all the names of everybody, even though we’ve been in school since… August? Something like that.
Because of her, the teacher made us all take a name quiz and… she failed… twice.
Earlier this week, we were doing persuasive speeches so the kids who were going on that day were putting their names on the board in order in which they would go. One kid really wanted to go as close to last as possible, so he moved the name of the girl who couldn’t name everybody in the class up to the top. She noticed, told the teacher, and he was forced to go second.
As he grudgingly made his way to the front of the room she said…
“You spelled my name wrong. I wasn’t about to let you off that easily.”
Yes… so says the girl who can’t name everybody in the class.
