Things You Wish You Hadn't Heard

Mrs. Math relates the following conversation she had with one of our students, Quiet Girl, while she was checking agendas this week.

"Quiet Girl, you really need to make sure your mother checks and signs your agenda every night," says Mrs. Math. "You mother didn't sign it for the Friday before Fall Break."

"I know," says Quiet Girl with her eyes downcast. "I'm sorry, but mom spent the entire break drunk so I couldn't get her to sign it."

"Oh," says Mrs. Math.

Sigh.

I laughed out loud when I read this. Sadly because I have had that happen to me on more than one occasion!

I had a friend tell me about her kindergarden class's visit with the drug dog. A little boy said out loud, "My momma and daddy do drugs! Lots of them!" Bet that was an interesting conversation afterwards!
