It's Tuesday!

I forgot to mention two things the other day. One, I went without chocolate for almost two weeks... until I accidentaly had a glass of chocolate milk on Sunday. I say accidentally because it wasn't until I was done the glass that I realized it had chocolate in it. I was doing so well, too! Of course now my motivation to avoid chocoalate is shot, which explains why I made chocolate chip cookies last night. I forgot what the other thing was I was going to tell you. Maybe I'll think of it later.

It seems like it has been a long time since I posted quotes that my students have been amusing me with. Would you like some more? I hope so, because here are some things I have been overhearing lately:

  • "I wish I knew how to say, 'I don't give a ratt's butt in English. [pause] I mean, French."
  • "Dude the cops were looking for you last night. Where did you go?"
  • Boy 1: Ms. Monroe likes looking at me because I'm pretty.
  • Boy 2: Dude, you just called yourself pretty.
  • Boy 1: Yeah, it means handsome, you know? Good lookin'.
  • Boy 2: Dude, you just called yourself pretty. You're gay.
  • Student: where do you want me to put this textbook?
  • Ms. Monroe (pointing to the double stack of textbooks each 16 t4extbooks high): Right there.
  • Student: Okay, I'm dumb. Sorry.
Speaking of students, a former student of mine (a dropout) made headlines today. Another student is nursing a biology injury - she got poked in the eyelid with a scalpel. The scalpel had a severed grashopper head on it! Can you say infection? My kids are going crazy!

When does vacation start?

My kids' last day of school was last week Friday. So summer vacation started already.

Loved the comments. I still remember the one about a girl being asked about her underwear. Cute.
