Not Everybody Loves To Write.

So my student A came in tonight. She’s tired. She has a cold. She has a mammoth project due on Friday. And when she was asked to write a script for a commercial on how to end child labor, she got a little facetious. I have her permission to post it.


Child 1: I want to be able to play instruments. I want to be a musician.

Child 2: I want to be an artist.

Child 3: I want to help sick people.

Woman: Every child has dreams. But thousands of children lose their dreams and doesn’t even get the chance to have a hope. (starts to cry) They’re suffering from child labour! They don’t get educated and they don’t have their freedom…Please call604-111-2222 to help these poor children. (sits down on the ground and cries more.)

I laughed so hard at this. Maybe I need to get out more.

    It reminds me of ads I heard about, but never saw. I think Sally Struthers was the crying woman. Nevertheless, I think this kid has a gift for parody.
