|Stone Soup, by Jan Eliot|
I found this comic when I was going through a stack of papers in my classroom. It was in with several other comics, so I assumed there were things in the pile that I had wanted to save for classroom use (mostly nerdy math stuff, especially the fabulous Foxtrot). I liked this one well enough to share with students (I publicly discuss my ADD issues), so I walked across the classroom to get scissors to cut it out.
Over at my desk, I noticed the top was off my teacup, so I replaced it. I was thirsty for more than tea, so I poured myself some water. I changed the station on the radio, as the npr program I was listening to had ended. And I walked back across the classroom to finish sorting that pile of papers...
...only to realize I had gotten sidetracked and forgotten to get the scissors to cut out the cartoon that makes fun of people who get easily sidetracked.
