Overheard in the lunchroom:

G: I saw Mr. 'B' (our custodian) at Burger King over the weekend.

E: Oh that's nice.

G: Yeah, that's where he got his BIG belly!



A: I have a tummy ache

R: what would you like me to do?

A: I think I should see the nurse and see what she'll do.

R: what do you think the nurse will do for you?

A: I dunno - I don't know anything about doctors.



S: I like white milk and it's HEALTHY for you.

me: yes it is - glad you like it.

S: Not like THAT (pointing to chocolate milk) kind.

me: you don't like chocolate milk?

S: It's not as healthy.....and it has CHOCOLATE in it!

me: you say that like it's a bad thing.

Monday Leftovers

Haven't posted in a while but I thought of a funny from last Halloween. And since it's that time of year again, it's worth repeating.

So on Halloween the kids all get to dress in their costumes and have a parade and a class party towards the end of the day. I decided to 'dress up' a little bit and surprise the kids. Nothing elaborate, just a pair of cat ears and whiskers that, when clipped onto my nose, looked pretty convincing -- at least to my 5 year olds. one would think. I had a lot of fun acting surprised when they would point out my whiskers (as if I had just grew them).

One boy's comment clinched the prize for the day.

Little 'Doug' who calls me over to quite frequently ask me nonsensical questions that have much ado about nothing LOL.

He looked me straight in the whiskers and very seriously asked, 'What are you going to be for Halloween?'

I shrugged my shoulders and said, 'I dunno, maybe a dog?'.

I 'heart' 5 year olds.

Hey Lady!

Out on the playground yesterday and I hear a child shout out 'Hey! OTHER Lunch Lady!!'

There are TWO of us. What made me the OTHER Lunchlady I wondered? I approached him with that 'are YOU talking to ME' smirk on my face, did a quick introduction that included him reading my name from my ID on my lanyard and he quickly apologized that he didn't know my name. (We're only into --what is it?-- nearly week SEVEN of school?) LOL.

When I walked away I noticed one of the aids laughing herself silly over the exchange between the boy and I.
