Everyday when the school day ends, the kids leave as their buses are called. I have a few children who end up hanging out and staying late just about everyday. It's during this time that I really get to talk to them and learn all about the funny things that go through their heads. One student in particular, wet cat girl, makes me laugh the most.
Student: Mrs. W, did your husband wear green today?
Mrs. W: No. He doesn't have much green in his wardrobe. He's not as cool as I am.
Student: Your husband is lame.
Mrs. W: Agreed
Student: So why'd you marry him then? Why would you want to be married to a lame person?
Mrs. W: Well, he's cute. And he'll do the dishes for me.
Student: Hmmm...I guess he was a good guy to marry
Student: BRB....do you know what that means?
Mrs. W: Be right back.
Mrs. W: Laugh out loud.
Mrs. W: Talk to ya later.
Student: HOW DO YOU KNOW ALL THESE?!
Mrs. W: ROFL?
Made me laugh. Mainly because my kids have no idea that my generation really was the AIM generation. It's also unfathomable to my fourth graders that I too have a cell phone and know how to text message.
