Thirty minutes after Inigo got on the bus I did the V-8 head slam and felt really bad that he didn't take anything.
Tonight, as we were having our family dinner we asked Inigo how his day went and what he decided to do for show-and-tell. He was completely okay that he forgot to take a toy or his badge from the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center (Great Falls souvenir). He informed us that he stood in front of his first grade class and told them that "they could ask him any question they wanted about Michael Jackson."
Yes, that was his "tell."
There were two questions posed to this local Michael Jackson expert:
#1: "Why did Michael Jackson die of a heart attack?"
A: "Well, Michael Jackson was actually murdered by someone giving him too much drugs."
#2: "Will you sing the song 'Beat It'?"
A: "Gaaaaaaaaaaaaah.........." and falls to the floor.
I can't wait to talk to his teacher and find out what she thought.
This is what the substitute teacher had to say on Facebook about Inigo:
I subbed first grade yesterday. loved it!! My favorite part was show and tell. One darling little boy sang a medoly of Micheal Jackson songs, busted a few "thriller" moves and shared Michael Jackson trivia with the class. I LOVE FIRST GRADE!!
After which his teacher posted this:
HAHAHAA!!!! And that would be my class! You're the best ____!
