First, I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who shared my article on Why Children's Books are Important. I won the contest to have my book, That Mama is a Grouch turned into an animated ebook! I couldn't have done it without you. You guys rock!
Now for the story:
My daughter came home from school yesterday with a big grin on her face. "Mom, you'll never believe what happened."
"What happened?" I asked.
"You know French class?"
I nodded. "Yes. I know French class. What about it?"
"Well, the teacher was blah blah blahing in French, which nobody understood, when somebody butt-dialed their iPod. The Suri app came on. (Suri is the app where you ask her a question, and she responds.) While Madam was talking, Suri interupted, 'I'm sorry. I don't understand. Please try again.'"
(She went on to tell me that the entire class erupted in laughter, and that the Madam took away the iPod. So much for understanding French!)
Oh, there's something to be said for perfect timing!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on the animated book deal! WOOT!
Thanks! Suri's timing was impeccable!Delete
Very exciting. Congrats.ReplyDelete
Congratulations Sherry.. nice one,that's amazing!ReplyDelete
I'd love to see the end result :)
French Teacher must have been miffed!!
I'll let you know when it's available. I can't wait to see what it's going to look like, too!Delete
And yes, the French teacher was not a happy camper!
Congratulations!! An animated eBook is cool.ReplyDelete
That is hysterical. Way to go, Suri.
Suri added some levity to the situation!Delete
So exciting about the animated ebook! Congrats! :DReplyDelete
Thanks! I'm excited, too!Delete
That's hilarious! Congratulations on the e-book.ReplyDelete
Love it when someone butt dials me. It's usually a daughter.ReplyDelete
When it happens to me, it's usually one of my kids' friends. ;0)Delete
Congratulations! And I wish that had happened in my Spanish classesReplyDelete
Haha! It was certainly perfect timing!Delete
Congrats to you. Suri need an upgradeReplyDelete
Yes. She needs to add French to her lexicon!Delete
And quite a French class that must have been :)
I am happy children had a good laugh :)
Thank you! Hopefully the French teacher got over it!Delete
Congratulations Sherry, well deserved. All the best.ReplyDelete
Congradulations on the animated ebook!ReplyDelete
Reminds me of BedazzledReplyDelete
Another great story -- and congratulations on the animated eBook. May the 4th be with you!ReplyDelete
Congrats Sherry :).ReplyDelete
LOL, I can imagine the eruption of laughter in class.
Thanks! I would've been laughing, too!Delete
congrats on getting animated! Disney here we comeReplyDelete
Ha! A Grouchy Mama movie? ;)Delete
Congratulations on winning the contest! That's great news! This is a funny story about French class. I remember that I was put into the accelerated class where the teacher didn't speak English at all. I could have really used Suri then!ReplyDelete
Suri did good!Delete
Congratulations on the animated eBook. Wonderful! I love the French story. I can just image the look on the teacher's face. Priceless story.ReplyDelete
I wish I had been a fly on the wall to see it!Delete
Congrats! I'd love to see what an animated ebook looks like. :)ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to seeing it, too!Delete
Congratulations Sherry! So happy for you!ReplyDelete
Haha Madam shouldn't be so angry that Siri was confused. Just change the language settings!
Right! A simple solution!Delete

Suri is a bit out of the loop, congratulationsDelete
Suri just needed a language update.Delete
Congratulations, Sherry! :-)ReplyDelete
That's fantastic! Congratulations!ReplyDelete
That's too funny about what happened in French class. The teacher needs to lighten up a little. She could've scored points by laughing along with the students. (But STILL confiscate the iPod until after class...)
She's a rather serious Madam. But yes, I agree, a laugh would've been in order!Delete
