Cause I'm Your Dentist....

The latest craze with my student is 80s movies, and this week, it's specifically 'Little Shop of Horrors.'  He's loving Steve Martin's dentist character, and seriously - what's not to love.  He's so heinous... hard to believe it's the same actor that played a rich, suave, middle-aged man who wooed Claire Danes in 'Shop Girl,' - or the banjo-wielding Bluegrass singer.  I also love how my student enjoys interesting things: 80s movies, classic rock music, sushi, and the list goes on.  I was thinking yesterday, while I was driving, that when kids are young, it's not cool to have diverse interests - you've got to follow the pack.  But when you get older, you're considered cool.  I wish kids could see how cool my students are the way I do.
