I Can't Even Make This Stuff Up
Yesterday in school, the 4th graders were working in groups and my son said to the kids in his group, "This problem seems impossible!" And his friend next to him said, "Nothing is impossible when you don't try." My son said, "What does that mean?" The response, "Just that, nothing is impossible when you don't try." My son said, " It doesn't make any sense, do you mean everything is impossible when you don't try?" And the kid said, " No, nothing is impossible when you don't try." The teacher was making rounds checking on the groups. The group told the teacher the quote and asked what that meant. And the teacher said, "Oh, always do your best." My son was confused about this all day, and came home and told me. I had the same reaction as he did, and the same confusion. Then last night the baseball coach was giving a pre game pep talk and my son asked the coach in the huddle what he thought that meant. And the coach said, "Yes. Just like he said, never give up."
