My students teach me new things all the time.
Sometimes, I wish they hadn’t. During a discussion about genres, I was giving examples of traditional literature. This turned into ghost stories, then into Bloody Mary, and even scarier Urban Legend I’d never heard of…Blue Baby.
Here’s what the kids told me:If you stand in front of a bathroom mirror, you need to recite the saying “Blue Baby” thirteen times while pretending to rock a baby in your arms. After the thirteenth time, a baby will appear in your arms. If you don’t throw it into the toilet and flush it down right away, the mother will come and kill you.
Talk about freaky! Even though the kids swear it works, I’m definitely NOT trying this one out!
