Kid-isms

Another student quote that you just can't make up....

Location-Car circle
People-kindergarden boy and me

Me: Where's your sister today?
Kindergartner: She's at home. She still has her ear infucktion.
Me: I'm sorry, what?
Kindergartner: An ear infucktion. It makes her ear hurts real bad.
Me: (trying to control laughter) Oh no! Well tell her I hope she feels better soon!

Now you KNOW that kid has said "ear infucktion" several times today. You better believe I repeated the story to any and every staff member that would listen. :-)

Every time a patient comes in with a script for an ear infection, I will think of this. Thank you!

Was directed to your teaching posts by a blogpal - laughing my head off!

Now, to reciprocate the giggles yu've given me, a story for you, fellow educator...

So Kid A comes to my office and is complaining about being pushed by Kid B, who sits in the outer office.
Me: "So, who pushed you?"
Kid A: "That kid."
Me: "Which kid?"
Kid A: (pointing at Kid B in outer office) "That asshole!"
Me: "What?!!" (I peek around my office door at Kid B)
Kid A: (Insistent and pointing repeatedly) "That asshole right there!"
Me: "Ahhh. Now I see! Axel pushed you!"

The pronunciation of the name "Axel" by an English Language Learner can be a very trick thing at times, and just the giggle I needed to get through that particularly crazy day!

Enjoy - Christmas break is coming!
