Last week, several of my friends and students asked and said some interesting things. Here's a list:
Neighbor A: "I like your hair; how did you make it?"
Friend B: "Can I go to the church if it 's that time of the month for me?"
From some student speeches:
"Tears were on the way. . . "
" I knew having a good soak would be my best option."
"I was weary of myself but then I met him... do you know who? (pause) My friend, reading books."
