GETTING TO KNOW YOU....
Back-to-school nights are always a good way to gauge what a class will be like for the upcoming year. This 4th grade teacher may be in for an interesting time:
Me: Are you ready to come back to school yet?(via A Series of Inconsqeuntial Events.)
Rocky: No, but my mama tole me not to get in any fights this year.
Me: Well, I think that's a great idea! How about we try to make this year a good one!
Mom: When I was young, my mama always tole me to let the other person throw the first punch.
Rocky: She tole me to do the same thing. (stare)
Me: Well, I bet we won't need to worry about that here, will we? (smile)
Mom: 'Cept my mama tole me that after they threw that first punch that I should beat the shit out of 'em. I tole Rocky not to do that.
Rocky: I'm not spost to get suspended this year.
Mom: If you get suspended, it better be for a real good reason 'sall I got to say.
Me: Heh, heh....
