    I have a couple gems to share...

    My cousin posted this one about a comment her daughter made while waiting for her son at the bus stop.

    Her: Ewww mommy, what's that smell?
    My Cousin: It's the "fertilizer" in the fields.
    Her: Oh, we use that to wash our hands at school... for snack time!
    My Cousin: I am pretty sure that is "sanitizer"
    Her: Oh. Yeah.

    On to the older kids - my seniors are doing a psychoanalysis of Macbeth. They started to do pre-research today - each group was assigned a disorder and they researched it for general info, linked it to Macbeth, and presented it to the class. While I was explaining the assignment, I said "Ok, I have 11 disorders..." The kids started laughing so I looked up and one of the kids said "Just 11?" :spitwater: Later in the class I said "I am going to give each of you a disease." They cracked up at that one, too. So I guess that wasn't really out of their mouths, but they had me laughing about it.

    Another funny teacher one...

    During my prep there's a child development class that's in the room next to my office so I hear that whole class. Here's what I heard today...

    teacher: Okay, tell me some symptoms of pregnancy
    student: Sore breasts
    teacher: yes
    student: missed period
    teacher: good, what else?
    student: irritable and moody
    teacher: yes. And no, I am not pregnant.

    Between my sister (P) and her 2 year old son (D):

    P: I love you D.
    D: Why do you love me?
    P: Because you are my special boy.
    D: I'm not special. I'm dangerous.

    A few days later...

    D: Hey mom I talked to myself.
    P: What did you talk about?
    D: We talked about politics.

    From my friends status:

    We are cancelling St. Patricks Day. Olivia has woken up 3 times already thinking the leprechauns are coming.

    My sister, an art teacher, to her high school (yes, really) students:

    "Does anyone know where the Netherlands is?"

    Long silence.

    One excited hand raises. "Ooh, ooh. That's where Peter Pan lives!"
