conversations from my life this week

because sometimes, you just need to share.
(at church)
Boy: Hey, do you have like, an identical twin or something?
Me: Noooo.... (totally recognizing the boy who is talking to me.)
Boy: Oh, that is so weird. Because I know a girl who looks JUST LIKE YOU.
Me: (Amused, because I know exactly who he is.) Oh really? What was her name?
Boy: You know, I can't remember. It was like three years ago...
Me: When you lived in Old Farm?
Boy: .... yes...
Me: Yeah, that's me.

Me: (walking in the door of Alex's apartment)
Roommate: Oh hello. You know, you are always smiling!
Me: ...thanks!
Roommate: I'm not sure if that was a compliment or not.
Me: oh.
Roommate: smiley people never make it very far in life.

Me: So... I got 100 followers on my blog. And it's kind of weird, because I kind of promised everyone that...
Alex: Yeah, I noticed that.
Me: So, weird, right?
Alex: It's fine. I just don't want to be in it.

(at school)
fourth grade boy: (holding mathbook) I wonder what this feels like? (smashes it into his face.)

fourth grade boy: (while learning about common nouns, specifically people) Do jaguars count as people?

fourth grade boy: (after receiving an air head) I love these! I love to stick them to my game controller. Then I can peel it off later and lick the controller. My mom and dad tell me not to do that, but it's my controller. I bought it.

p.s. you guys, go say thank you to your teachers, seriously. they work SO hard.


  1. The kid's right. He can lick it if he bought it. That will be the rule in my house. "If you bought it, you can lick it. If not, well... you're out of luck."

  2. Ha ha, what a funny kid! Ahh, I'm so jealous you get to work with these funny kids every day
