Still making connections

So the scene is the end of the day during study hall. One student starts talking about a movie she saw that had ‘Lennie’ in it. I realize she means John Malkovich eventually. She calls him that because he played Lennie in Of Mice and Men. Then, another, very excited, student comes up and says ‘I was feeding my hamster and realized I was feeding him alfalfa, just like Lennie talks about feeding the rabbits’. I was really impressed that he made that connection and was so pumped to share it. It means that he was not only paying attention but that it made enough of an impression on him to make that connection while at home. All I could do was smile.
