Fantasy vs. reality

Young children famously confuse fantasy with reality.

Yesterday I told Jeff, “Rafi’s teacher said to wear dark clothes tonight to the Chanukah party. I think she’s going to turn the kids into candles or something.”

Imagine our amusement when Rafi burst out, “Michal is a nice teacher! She won’t turn us into candles!”

I think Rafi was confused because he recently learned about Mrs. Gorff from Sideways Stories from Wayside School, the mean teacher who turns the children into apples!

The candle-children at the party were adorable, of course. The teacher had replaced the ordinary light bulb with a black light and draped each child with a white shawl to create a very striking effect.

Carefully making our way toward a pint-size chair...yes that is a lit candle
