Overheard...


It was field trip day for Godson so I tagged along and hung out with his class at the Aquarium. The place was jammed packed with kids from kindergarden to high school age and the conversations were varied and-- Interesting....

#####

Teacher #1: You should get on the "Trials" bang wagon. You can make some really great extra cash with very little effort. I've watched movies, tasted canned peaches and tested toilet paper-- Each time I made $50!

Teacher #2: What do you mean you tested toiler paper?

Teacher #1: You do not want to know the details.... *wink*wink*

#####

Kindergarden girl: Oophs, I tooted! (she passed gas)

Teacher: That's not polite. You're supposed to say "Excuse me."

Kindergarden girl: "Excuse me, I farted."

#####

First Grader: "Mrs. Teacher, Ryan said the "s" word!

Teacher: "Yes, I heard it. Don't be a tattle-taler."

First Grader: "He said shit and I'm just supposed to listen to that!?!?!"

#####

Fifth Grade Boy: "Men crabs dance when they want to have sex with women crabs."

Fifth Grade Girl: "Seriously!!! Where do you come up with this stuff?"

Fifth Grade Boy: "I saw it on YouTube."

Fifth Grade Girl: "You went looking for crab sex on YouTube? Eww!"

Fifth Grade Teacher: Change the subject immediately!

Cheers!

  9. I'm reminded of overhearing something my daughter said to a relative, who at the time didn't get the significance..."Daddy has a problem with his nose."

    Oh yes I did. If you get my drift.

    She passed away in 2009 from brain cancer, with the tumors sprouting in her skull about <--> this far from the cell phone she used virtually all the time she was awake.

    But everyone knows cell phones don't cause cancer.

    She would have liked these little ones' comments.

    Have fun on your trip and come back safe.

  20. I drove a group of 9 year old Girl Scouts to camp a while back and heard some of the same kind of funny (and sometimes scary) conversations.
