Anthony's “Idea Award”

It turns out that Anthony's art project, A Fish That Can Suck In Anything, was a more than a hit just here at home. He was one of several who received recognition for interesting, individual thinking in their art project, in the form of an “Idea Award”.

The prize was lunch with the principal, who has street cred with the kids (one of the sports-day activities, for example, had him dressed head to toe in a blue-spandex super-hero suit that I would certainly not have the guts to don.).

Anthony said that he enjoy it..... it's normally a bit crazy during lunch (they eat in their classroom at their desks), but the lunch yesterday with the two other kids and the principal was quiet, and he could eat fast (which, I took it, meant that he could then go out to play more quickly). I asked whether he chatted with the principal, to which he replied with “yes, of course” in a somewhatwhat else would we do, are you stupid?” tone. I then commented that the principal was a nice guy, to which he said “yes, of course, what are you thinking?” in a somewhat exasperated “he's the principal, of course he's nice, you moron” tone.

I've always known that I have a good grasp of the obvious, and now, apparently, Anthony knows too. 🙂

That is SO fantastic! When I first saw your post of his art project, I was amazed. He definitely deserves an award.

Great post. I got a laugh at the end.
