The Unexplicable Obsession with Dentists

In my previous post, I talked about my 2nd grade student who mentioned the have-to-look-at-people's-mouth-everyday noble profession of dentist as a means of transportation.

No, dear, dentist is not a common means of transportation.

Okay, they are only about seven or eight years old so I thought it was okay. Or so I thought.

Last week I taught my 5th grade classroom. In the middle of the creative writing lesson, the students were asked to close their eyes imagining they were exploring a nearby forest.
Me: What do you see?
Student: Lion! Tiger!
Student: Green trees, and snakes!
Student: My friend wearing a tutu skirt (Here, the teacher decided to ignore this student)
Student: The sun shining.
Student: Dentist!
So, I guess there is an unexplicable obsession of students with dentists. XD

Maybe that student saw this when he closed his eyes.

Or maybe this.

LOL. Teaching is fun.
