I don’t know if this happens to anyone else, but being around lots of kids in a classroom sometimes seems to fine tune the subconscious brain’s alert system into high gear at the weirdest times.
In the last class of 2nd graders I taught this week, I thought I heard:
“Lemon Yellow Pee…”
ATTENTION, ATTENTION, ALERT, LOCATE, ISOLATE…until the small sing song voice continued:
“…Q, R, S, T, U, V…”
Emergency alert canceled…
