I spent the morning teaching a bunch of 6th graders how to say “I want to ____”. The dialogue from the cd-rom we use goes something like,
Jenny: Let’s talk about our show. What do you want to do?
Kevin: I want to sing!
Mike: I don’t want to sing. I want to dance.
Totally innocent on its own. Except I was once a college kid who listened to Dane Cook. And there is that one joke he does about chicks using dance as a cure all for heartbreak or whatever the hell. So this morning, as I repeated “I want to dance” no less than 30 times, I couldn’t get this out of my head. It is one of the few Dane Cook bits that remains funny to me.
