Carrying out a conversation about recycling and caring for our planet
Student: "Mrs. Osborne, this is our only Earth and I think we should take care of it. I don't want to live on Mars because I think spacesuits look awfully uncomfortable."
Student: "Mrs. Osborne, can you come to my house for Christmas?"
Me: "That's really kind of you, but I will probably be spending time with my family over the holidays."
Student (thinks for a few seconds): "Well they can come, too!"
