Today in Class (You Know It's Almost Time for Spring Break...)

(Side note: I don't keep Kleenex in my room. The kids steal it. I make them use toilet paper instead.)

Kid: Mrs. Revis! I have to go to the bathroom. I need a tissue...I have an my nose.


Little skinny kid who might weigh a buck puts on her bookbag....and tips over backwards! Her bookbag weighed more than her!


Kid: Gah, Mrs. Revis! I wrote the sentence, isn't that enough? Are you telling me I have to spell everything and use punctuation, too?!


Kid: This is English class, Mrs. Revis. Why are we reading all this stuff from Japan?

Me: It's a World Literature class. World Literature.

Kid: How long has it been like that?!


Note: This one is a bit PG13. Also: It is gross.

Kid: Sniff my hands!

Me: (speaking from experience) No way!

Kid: *thrusts hands under nose*

Me: UGH! What is that? That is foul!!

Kid: (very proud of herself) We cut off bull testicles in agriculture class today! And I didn't wash my hands!

(Yes. I work in a school so redneck as to have bulls and classes where dangly bits of the bulls are removed. There are also goats.)

Bahaha! I love your students. They make for very funny blog fodder. *Lol!*

LOL. Gotta love the age when kids are old enough to castrate bulls but young enough to think it's funny to not wash hands so as to savor the stink. ;)
