Seen and heard today from my 8th graders:

  • Oh! You mean you actually wanted us to read the story?
  • Can I get a progress report to take to my probation officer?
  • I didn't bite her, she bit herself! Okay, I bit her, but she shouldn'ta put her hand in my face.
  • written in a student's essay: The reason why I love my friends is because they support me for who I am. They do not care that I am biosexual [sic] and love me just for me.
  • Seriously! That cheeseburger just flew out of my hand.
  • Mrs. B, I'm going to be absent tomorrow because I have to have an autopsy to figure out what's wrong with my stomach.
  • Tomorrow we don't have school because it's veterinarian's day, right? I don't get what's so special about veterinarians that we get a whole day off for it, but whatever. At least we don't have school tomorrow.

It's only Monday, people. And you wonder why I'm the Terminator?

  1. With 5 cats and 2 dogs, my veterinarian is pretty special to me. I'd like a day off work to honor her. Well, as long as it was a paid day off.

  2. Biosexual? An etymology unit may seriously be called for with these 8th graders.

    2 weeks until Thanksgiving. Perhaps things will change come December…perhaps.

  3. I remeber the good old days when the questions posed in grade 8 were things like, I wonder if I should hold his hand in public, ahhhh big step!

    It seems the youths of today have changed??

  4. LMAO….those were great! Please tell me that wasn't all in one day?!

    I totally have Veterinarian's Day off tomorrow!

  5. Hehehe, 8th graders are about 12 years old right? (we use a different schooling system here in SA)

    I love the autopsy comment and you know those cheeseburgers are slippery buggers πŸ˜‰

  6. lol. LOVE them. Especially "Mrs. B, I'm going to be absent tomorrow because I have to have an autopsy to figure out what's wrong with my stomach." Poor kid!
