The backstory: My 7th graders are creating American history-themed amusement parks as their final class project. By necessity, this means discussions of their favorite amusement park rides. Student G has even greater ambitions.
G: You can rent all of Hurricane Harbor (a local water park) for yourself and I’d like to do that some day.
S: For yourself? Wouldn’t that be….(and here I pause to consider my word choice…..I’m thinking of lonely or overwhelming or quiet or something but G quickly filled the gap).
