Backflips

Entirely random conversation with a student.

Student: Miss, can I do a backflip off your wall?

Me: Have you ever done a backflip before?

Student: No.

Me: You realize that this floor is concrete, yes?

Student: Yes.

Me: And that closed head and spinal cord injuries are not exactly like stubbing your toe?

Student: I guess?

Me: Do you still think it’s a good idea to try a backflip?

Student: I never said it was a good idea. I just wanted to try it.
