A Child's Understanding
I remember in first grade, being excited to hear that we were going to have an art class. There was a little problem with my expectation of it though...
I should mention that I am French, and in french, art is pronounced with a silent "t". Every time the teacher would announce that it was art class however, my young ears would hear "or" instead of "art". By the way, or means gold, so as a child, I thought my teacher was literally going to teach me how to make gold! I thought I was going to be rich!
And thus, every time it would be announced, I thought today would be the day I would learn the secret. The last classes were all a fluke, and this one would be it! It took me a few weeks (or months, I can't remember) to finally clue in to what the class was actually about! But fear not, I quickly got over my disappointment when I learned the truth. Art is fun after all!
