    "Do not color on your teeth."
    Also, "Don't stick raisins in your nose."

    It's been an interesting day.

    So, what was the most random line that you found yourself saying today?

    I started to make a joke about cantaloupe (~1kg) and how that is what parents might say to their kid when they want to get married...*sigh* :)

    "Are you putting my diffraction grating in your mouth?"

    13 year olds still can't resist putting random objects in their mouth.

    Big commotion outside of my window: the P and a student are yelling at each other, the P finally lost her patience and let the kid have it (well deserved). I've never witnessed this before.
    Most of my students run to the window to see, and I go, too and say:
    "You all sit down, I will watch out and let ya'll know if anything interesting happens" :)
    Of course we carried on with instruction, and nothing else happened but it got them back to their seat in an orderly fashion.

    For some reason, they don't take my threats seriously... :lol:

    I had to explain what the word decay means to one of my students. (We were playing a hangman game). He kept asking why it was a word, why didn't they just say something rotting and falling apart. I turned to him and said that when they wrote the dictionary they had to use a certain number of letters and they needed 5 more. He thought a second and said, "oh, ok, cool." :rolleyes: 3 1/2 days left.

    "Members of your family tend to have run-ins with animals, don't they?"

    This was after several stories from the same student over the course of a year, including his brother getting chased by a herd of cows and his uncle antagonizing a goose.

    I LOVE his thread because my students and I have this constant laugh over the randomness of the conversations we have...

    In the past week or two:

    "I will help you with your eye in a second, after I help ________."

    "How will you expand upon this field of flowers?"

    "Even though it looks like yogurt, it is not. Do not eat it."

    "If you're going to go with the subject of bayonets and their ruthlessness, you might as well make it really gory."

    "Google 'silhouette of evil clown'."

    "Stop chewing on your shoe."

    "Your eighth grade buddy is not a horse, please get off his back."

    Me: "Why do you have your partners name written all over your arm?"
    Student: "We wanted to use his new pen but couldn't find any paper to use. I don't mind...it kinda tickled."

    "Is that anatomically possible?"

    My response to one girl saying to another girl that she should perform an act upon her that requires a unique male physical feature.

    It usually defuses a tense situation and gets both girls laughing.

    "That's right, grandpa is not dead, great grandpa is dead and we said goodbye to him today."

    Backstory: I tried to explain to my own 3 year old children that my grandfather (their great grandfather) passed away and I would be flying out to say goodbye to him. Later, I Skyped with my children and my father came into the video. My son said "Look, it's grandpa! He's not dead!"

    Today I gave out awards for end of year (tomorrow is last day). I worked really hard on them: I had "the survivor" award for the kid who despite hating all things school...stuck it out and managed to grow in several subjects..

    My personal favorite "perfect attendance"

    Me: my next award is for the girl who clearly doesn't like getting awards,....the perfect attendance award goes to "student" who ironically enough is not here....

    The adults in the room thought it was funny

    The vocabulary word was "impalpable." He gave for his Frayer model non-example: cheese. His explanation? "You know, 'cause you can feel cheese..."

    Planned Parenthood was here yesterday so I said something like "not every girl gets really wet." The presenter was talking about sexual stimulation and the "juices" that flow before and after sex and my comment was part of that discussion. That was one of the more "tame" comments I said and was heard during those sessions.

    I say crazy stuff all day long, though.
