I made a 9th grader shoot milk out his nose today. He was sitting with a student that was absent yesterday. When I asked him where he was yesterday the 9th grader said he was in Juvenile Detention, for robbing a bank, in a Taco Bell. I told him that I have never seen a bank in a Taco Bell and asked him where it was. He said it was in the bathroom (junior high kids can go from 0 to absurd in milliseconds).
Without thinking I came out with “I don’t think I’d want to swipe my ATM card in a toilet.” That’s when he laughed so hard milk came out his nose.
When this picture came up as one of my background pictures on my school computer, a student told us that his mom doesn’t want a tombstone over her grave. She wants her family to put up a parking meter. Good thing I didn’t have a mouth full of chocolate milk.
