Two 8th graders walking in the hall. One says to the other “It feels like I’m getting old.”
When I told 6th period that I would be there after school if they wanted to retake the test, one said “You sound like one of those motivational speakers: ‘And I’ll be here all evening.’”
I was doing lunch duty and snagged a kid’s crackers while he was turned away. When he turned back and saw them missing, he immediately turned to me to get them back. While he was looking my way, the kid across the table, who had the exact same type of crackers, slid his to the same spot the ones I took were in. He told the kid “They’re right here”, pointing at them. The kid looked back, saw them, looked back at me and then back at the crackers. The look on his face was priceless, but I still gave his back.
