Words of wisdom...or not.
That's it. They're weird. Some amusing examples to follow.
1) The darkest child in the seventh grade wearing a t-shirt that said "I'm the original blonde."
2) Fill in the blank test question: J.J. Thomson discovered electrons through his __science___ experiments. Good answer, kid, good answer. I marked it correct. I didn't have the heart to mark it wrong. I mean, it IS true.
3)Student: "Ms. Green, wanna know what all the students say about you?"
Me: A little nervous, but curious "Sure."
Student: "You have a really big butt. Like, you have a donk. Insert lyrics, tune, and dance moves to 'she's got a donk'."
Me: "Okay then. Moving on..."
The rest of that class was interesting.
More to come. Sorry for any grammatical errors to the ELA teachers out there. I've got a running list, just can't remember them all now.
