First day of school

Advice from my student...

::Student picks up a marble from my desk::
Student: "Miss R, what's this?"
Me: "It's a marble."
Student: "Don't put marbles up your nose!"
Me: "Very good. You shouldn't do that."
Student: "Don't put marbles up your nose - you have to go to the hospital and Mommy gets mad."
Me: "Did you put a marble up your nose?"
Student: (quickly) "NO!"
Me: "Did one of your brother's put a marble up their nose?"
Student: "No."
Me: "Do you have any marbles at home?"
Student: "No. I'm not allowed to have marbles."

Lesson of the day: Don't put marbles up your nose.
