If I wasn't so busy teaching, I could write even more gems down.


Frank was sitting at my table coloring this morning (8:40 and I had already assigned him the special seat) when I asked a question.


"It sound like you have a cold! Are you sick?"




"Naw," he said, coloring furiously, "I'm not sick. Boogers just clog up my holes and make me talk funny."






Try sitting through that with a straight face.

No, he doesn't sound sick at all. Hilarious.

Good grief. I don't know how you keep a straight face with any of those kids.

Have a fabulous weekend. :)

Amy said...

Not possible! That's the kid you want in your class every year, just to keep you smiling!

I plan on using that line at work. Brilliant!

Coming from a family of teachers and cops, doctors and farmers, little gems like that fill my mind with delight and dismay...frequently at the same time.

Hey... at least you remember some of them... I sit down to write them and think, "What was it they said??"

Absolutely hilarious!!! Children say the darnest things. It is amazing how much I rely on my Franks in my classroom to keep me going in the profession at times.

Frank and I have a lot in common!

With insight like that, I think Frank could quite possibly be the next Oprah.
