I didn't even know we were racing...

Posted on April 5, 2011 

The morning after two snow days is always full of animated discussions. 

 

I was talking to a precocious boy in our class named Luke, who has added a lot of fun to the class this year.

 

 

“I could hardly get up my driveway yesterday after all that ice!" I was telling my paraprofessional. "It reminded me of when I was stuck in Washington, DC last year!” 

 

 

I heard a voice at my elbow.  It was Luke.

 

 

“Hey! I used to live in Washington, DC!”

 

 

“Luke, I remember your mom telling me you were born here! Were you maybe in your mommy’s belly when you lived there?”

 

 

“Naw,” he said, shaking his head, “I was just a sperm them. A very slow sperm going towards the egg.” 

 

 

 

And that is how you go from snow to sperm in 9.3 seconds.

 

 

 

 

Let’s see Jimmy Johnson do THAT.
