Soccer Field during Lunch

A student is running around making a screeching tire sound that turns into a crow 'caw'.

Me: "What is that sound from?"

6th grader: "It is an animal that my friend and I made up. It is a Seagawk. A combination of a Seagull and a Hawk. A Seagawk."

Student proceeds to run and puts arms out while he flies around the soccer field during lunch.

.Arnold Palmer.

Lunch Room

Me: "How is that Arnold Palmer?"

6th grader: "Pretty good. I do like making my own though, I put more lemonade than ice tea."

Me: "Oh, nice choice!"

(student takes a big sip of Arnold Palmer)

Me: "What drink would you want named after you?"

6th grader: "Well, I already made one at camp. It is a combination of lemonade, lime juice, and orange juice."

Me: "That sounds really good."

6th grader: "Yeah, I put more orange juice in it than anything, BUT it is great tasting!"

.rhymes with.

Lunch Room

Me: "You don't like Kale?"

6th grader: "No, I tried it and I realized that I don't like it."

Me: "Any particular reason?"

6th grader: "One of the big ones is that it sounds like whale."

.please stay.


6th grader to me: "You are hilarious. You should stay here all the time."

.8th grade.

In Hallway

Me: "How is 8th grade treating you?"

8th grader: "Okay, I guess. It is a lot of work, but it is good to be be busy."

Me: "Are you on break now?"

8th grader: "Break?! We don't get breaks! 8th grade: No Breaks, Just Homework."

I give a high five and send the student on their way.

.serious and funny.

Spanish Class

Students have names of people written on a piece of paper. They are going to greet each other in Spanish and introduce themselves to one another as the name of the person on their piece of paper.

6th graders (just given a piece of paper): "Mine is serious and funny."

Me: "Oh, yeah? What do you mean?"

6th grader: "Well, adults like it and kids think it is sounds funny."

Me: "Is it latte?!"

6th: (laughing) "No, you'll see."

Turns out it was Sammy Sosa.

Confiscated Note -

Why don't you like me? What did I do to you? I'm sorry for whatever I did? Why am I such a bad person?

.zero everything.

Lunch Room

Me: "The new drinks they have in the lunch room are pretty fancy. What is that cucumber and lime?"

6th grader: "Yeah, it tastes great and look at this (points at the back label) all zeroes."

Me: "You see that more and more with drinks, all zeroes, and it still tastes good."

6th grader: "Yeah, probably all that acid."

.the difference.


2nd grader to me: "My Dad is as tall as you."

Me: "Oh, wow. He is pretty tall."
