Certain words do not belong at the bottom of the page.

     Last week in Psychology we were going over the vocabulary for the chapter on Adolescence.  The last word on the screen I was working on was gonads, and as I was getting ready to scroll to the next screen, I asked "has everybody got this yet?"  D said to the student next to him, "I don't have gonads yet"  He's still getting crap for that comment.
     Then today I'm in the cooking class talking to the teacher, who is new to the school, and L (a good friend of D's) is telling me about D's comment that I seemed to have missed.  The new teacher didn't know who D was so I described him as 10'-4"and 67 lbs.  L adds that she calls him the "Anit-L" since he is all that she is not. We were chuckling over that when L tells us "Yeah when D & I stand next to each other we make the number 10."  L's got a good attitude towards life.

A couple of years ago, I had a class of 8th graders playing a Spanish vocabulary bingo game with food words. We got a winner, much to the disappointment of one boy who was "almost there" and who shouted out "I need huevos!" to the class.
He will NEVER live that one down.
(Just in case you don't know: huevos literally means "eggs" but is slang in Mexico for "testicles.")
I'm sure this kid could relate to the "gonad" kid.

Go check out my post for today. I think you'll get a laugh out of it.

Had a good one today:
A 9th grade boy (talking about track practice last night, but we didn't know that at the time) walked into my class from lunch with his best (male) buddy and said to him, "Is your a*& sore, or is it just mine?"
Uh, yeah.
No one's going to let either of them forget that little Freudian slip.

Ok, that's a bad one. I don't know if I could have refrained from laughing out loud.

Oh, don't worry: no one refrained from laughing. :)

RE:"and who shouted out 'I need huevos!'"

At least he didn't shout "I need conos"...

Where's that tilde when Your Conscience needs it?
