Conversation I overheard last week:
Kid Uno: If you swallow gum it gets stuck in your neck for 10 years.
Kid Dos: Ten!? In your neck??!
Kid Uno: Yeah, so if you swallowed gum when you were a day old, it'd still be in your neck.
Kid Dos: My sister has a lot of gum in her neck then....
One of my girls actually saw a ghost with a chain saw in her hallway last night! Another girl's praying mantis was pregnant and had EIGHTY babies in her bathtub! And one boy knocked down his entire old school when he accidentally leaned on a brick! They got mad at him, so now he's at our school, of course.
Can't wait to really dive in to narrative writing. With this bunch, heaven knows we'll have some creative material to work with........
