A child came in one day with an abicus and a chart graphed by his father, showing the multiplication table, after showing me how the abicus works and how he gets the numbers on the chart, I asked the child, "do you like multiplication?" he responded, "I think it's kind of boring" and I asked "oh yeah, what does boring mean?" and he said "It means it's not fun".
A little later the little boy saw my notepad and caught his name on my notepad, he asked me "Gilda why do you have my name on your paper?" and I answered "well I was jotting down what you said earlier, would you like me to read it to you?" and he said, "yes" as I read, he jumped in and protested "no multiplication is fun, it's not boring". Easy come easy go!
