TALES FROM THE LUNCHROOM


I thought I'd share these fun little nuggets of wisdom and inspiration that I overheard today while on lunchroom duty. As a friend of mine said today, every would-be parent out there should have to cover a lunchroom duty or two--the world would be a lot less densely populated!
  • One boy to another: When is your mom going to have her baby? Does she still fit in your car? (I bet she's just hormonal enough to have a mean left hook...)
  • A little girl to a boy at her table: If you scoot any closer to me, I'm going to spit on you. (One day you may find him attractive...but probably not.)
  • One boy to another: Why are your teeth so yellow? Did your lunch cause it or don't you brush your teeth? (Politically correct? I think not...)
  • And finally, my favorite, one little girl to another: I love your nails! (purple and chipped) My mom says I can only use clear, because the other colors are trashy. (I tucked my red nails immediately into my pockets in shame...)
And then, back in class, as we were discussing the finer points of measurement:
  • Boy in foot cast: Mrs. B.? What do you think this black and green stuff is that's between my toes? (Lint...let's pray to God it's lint!)
I bet there's not a person out there working in any office that heard anything quite like I did today!

OMGoodness, I just love the things kids come up with to say.

The Blonde Duck said...

She probably meant trashy for a little kid. :) Her own nails are probably blue.

You can't make this stuff up! LOL!
I love the trashy nails bit!

While we were shopping the other day, the sales lady bent down to talk to her and my daughter (age 5) clapped her hand over her mouth. The lady would ask her questions and she would just nod. When I realized she was turning green, I quickly pulled us away from the lady. I asked Cat why she was getting sick and she said VERY LOUDLY, "that lady had poop for breakfast!" LOL! THAT lady was right behind me cause I forgot one of my bags! LOLOLOL!

Oh! Thanks for following me!

Oh!Oh! I never get any scrap projects done either, but I can open a scrapbook paper store any day now...

Hugs!

I came to visit from sits and I have to say I'm thankful I did! I laughed super hard at this! I have a friend that is a elementary teacher that I might just have to send to read this! Have a great day!
