love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
a conversation with one of my seventh grade boys today
boy: miss c. i just want to let you know that if i yelp today, it’s because my stomach hurts.
me (peering over my glasses at him): how about if your stomach is hurting so bad that you are yelping, you need to go home
last week, this same kid says to me (in verbatim) “i am having some gas issues. can i step out to fart?”
no lie. i can’t make this stuff up.
