i have a student that always wears a baseball hat. he's new to the school and from peru via french speaking canada, so he's in my english as a second language class. anyway, i just saw him in the hall, with his traditional white cap on and it suddenly occurred to me that his ears stick out. yep, he's got poking out ears - that's why he wears the hat - it goes down over his ears keeping them tucked into place. cute kid. glad i don't have poking out ears.
