Conversation #1 - I heard was one boy telling another boy about a turkey he saw and how he would like to take it and keep it in his back yard to save it from being eaten.
Him: "I can't stand it when she talks to other guys!"
Her: "If you had half a brain, she wouldn't have to talk to other guys."
Him: "That's not right! She talks to those other guys about stuff she doesn't talk to me about."
Her: "Because you don't care what she thinks."
Him: "That's no reason for her to cheat on me."
Her: "Talking is not cheating."
Him: "Yes it is! It means she wants to be around someone else. They might as well go out on a date!"
Her: "Well, if you cared, she would talk to you. You just don't care."
Him: "It takes too much time to care!"
Her: "You're an idiot!"
So ended the conversation. The girl walked away and left the guy standing with his mouth open and a look on his face that said he really didn't get it.
"What are we going to do to today, Mrs. Nelson?"
"We're going to do SSR."
"Oh, I don't know. Depends on how I feel."
"Why does everything depend on how you feel?"
"Because it's my kingdom and my rules!"
"Mrs. Nelson, can you look over my Works Cited before I hand it in?"
"Why are the top 4 citations in bold?"
"The computer did that."
"No it didn't."
"I put new ink in it."
"The computer did not do that. You did it. A computer will only do what you tell it to do."
"Not mine. It does what it wants to all the time!"
I handed the paper back to him and he walked away muttering something about his computer having an alien in it.
So, next week we have the entire week off for Thanksgiving break. I will be busy with family and some home projects. I will be back on December 1st. I hope all reading this blog have a wonderful and restful holiday!
