Today, Victor's math teacher stopped me in the hall to tell me a story. Victor approached her the other day and said, in his thoughtful way and with his customary hand motions:
Mrs. H, I have been thinking about why it is just so hard for me to focus and get the right answers sometimes. It is because I am so tall, and the blood just can't get all the way to the top of my head.
Mrs. H said she had no idea how to respond to that, but that she's been laughing about it ever since.
