Bueller, Bueller, anyone, anyone?

I had one of my bubbles, “burst” today.  One of my all time favorite movies is “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.  It provides a throw back to the old days of school mischief that does not involve the tough stuff that happens today in our schools.  One of the many classic lines in the movie is when the teacher asks, “Bueller, Bueller, anyone, anyone?”  I love using this line when teaching and watching those in the room either smile because they get it or smile because they think I’m crazy.

Back to my bubble that burst.  (For those not familiar with the movie), Ferris drives a red Ferrari in the movie as he makes his way around town.

It is a very hot car, that is in mint condition and is rarely driven by the owner.  Of course Ferris drives it like a high school student, hard and fast.  The car is going on sale Sunday.  The problem with the sale of the Ferrari, is that it was not a Ferrari, it IS an MG, topped with a fiberglass Ferrari body to look like the real thing.  Bummer! Ferris, we have been deceived for all these years.

I have decided to ignore the lie presented to us by the movie industry and hold onto the memories of a fun spring day, out driving around with my best friend and a pretty girl.  I can’t believe the movies have lied to us…. anyone, anyone?
