On Thursday the students ran the mile in PE. Here is the dialog I had with a one of my students a few minutes prior to running.
Student: "Guess what?"
S: "Guess what I gave up for Lent?"
M: "Chocolate, sweets, TV, soda pop. . .?"
S: "No, I gave up exercise."
S: "Yes, I gave up exercise. So, this means I don't have to run the mile today!"
M: "Do you have a note from home telling me that you can't exercise?"
S: "No, I did not know I needed a note."
M: "Guess you have to run the mile today."
