Where do they come up with this???

Today was awesome!  Even though we didn't even start getting to the nitty gritty~the music~I still had a blast getting to know the kids and vice-versa.  I made up a questionnaire for instrumentation, contact info, yada yada, but then I threw in a few random questions that I got with the help of my friend David Eff.  One of them, "What would you do for a million dollars?" produced the best results:
  • Invent something, get on a wild pony in the wild pony races @ rodeos
  • kiss michael jackson/pants him; pants a british guard 
  • run into a class and yell the loudest as can
  • sing with music in front of 100 people Then find a cure for cancer (both important)
  • play my worst insterment
  • Something that seems difficult then find a loophole
  • go and bye a monkey
  • catch a crocidial!
  • jump up and down patting my head and rubbing my tummy. (a million dollar feat!)
  • I would be a p orn  star  (I wonder what his parents would think, should I tell them?)
  • brak my leg
  • I would Jump of a Cliff
  • steal a million dollars (I think this one is clever)
  • I would Be a suicid Bomber (This one is brilliant!)
  • enter the lottery.
  • jump off a 6 foot cliff
  • marry someone rich
  • Kill someone if I had to wear a bow tie  (I had just barely told the class they have to wear bowties for concerts)
  • I don't care
  • Eat Raw Fish...?
  • A better question is what would you do for a klondike bar? (get a million dollars?)
  • quiz school and buy what ever I want (I think English is exactly what this student needs)
  • as little as possible
  • Fergie (This bright little mind would do anything!)
And a two question favorite:

What would you do for a million dollars?
"buy the school board out"

Why is music important to you?
"Because I don't like it"

On another note, tonight after a day of work driving back from Magrath I saw the city lights of Lethbridge appear and it was the first time genuinely feeling like I was coming home.

Fergie is my answer too.

Wait I just realized the implications of what that kid meant. Then that is NOT my answer. I would impersonate Fergie for a million dollars. Who am I kidding. I would do that for free.
