The day started badly, I'll admit. Embedding a staple in your very sensitive thumb will do that to you. However, my day soon improved, with some very intriguing and hilarious quotes to show for it.
The first, from a sixth grade boy:
"Can I have your button?"
"They don't come off."
"Wanna bet?" he says, grinning.
What a charmer, eh?
Another choice quote while reviewing sixth grade mythology: "They're furies, not fairies." Heaven forbid they think that the evil furies emerging from Pandora's box (hate, sorrow, ill health, death) are actually fairies in disguise.
You just have to love kids, don't you?
