A friend of mine was teaching an art lesson to several first graders. She was trying to get them to remember the colors, and how to make other colors from the primary colors. A little boy walked up to her, held up his first finger and said sweetly “Red”. The teacher said that that was very good. He then held up his third finger and sweetly said “Blue”. She again replied that that was good. Then she asked him “What color do those two colors make?” He then raised his fist in the air, proudly extended his middle finger and shouted “PURPLE!!!!”……just as the principal walked into the room. It took the principal three glasses of water and several tissues in order to compose herself and resume her day.
