Chicken Fries, Autographs, and Wedgies

Visiting Carolyn’s classroom is always a blast. Usually it’s the highlight of my week. Last Friday I was able to visit for a couple hours. Here are some of the best quotes:

When Carolyn was talking about how different animals can be helpful, she came to dogs and asked, “How can dogs help you?” One little guy said: “They lick you clean.”

When Carolyn asked what kind of meat comes from chickens, one little girl answered: “French fries.”

I had just gotten there when this little boy walked up to Carolyn, bobbing his head back and forth very dramatically in a pecking motion, and announced: “Look, Mrs. Hyde, I’m a woodpecker!”

One boy had a baseball card of Jeff Russell. First he told me that it looked like me. Then a couple minutes later he walked over to me and held out his baseball card in one hand and a pencil in the other, and said: “Will you sign my card?” (As a kid I dreamed of the day when I played in the big leagues and people would come after to me to sign their baseball cards, but this is the first time it’s ever actually happened.)

And do you remember Milton, who had his own Top 10 post recently? When we were on the playground, he came over to me with a big grin and said: “Mr. Hyde, can I give you a wedgie?”

Kindergarteners. You gotta love ’em.

  1. So did you sign the card?

  2. Nope. I tried to explain that it wasn’t actually me, but I’m not sure he got the concept. But I didn’t want to deface his card!

    You would have, though, wouldn’t you?

  3. So what did you say to Milton about the wedgie? He sounds like a bully in training.

  4. Yeah, that story does make him sound like a bully in training, but I don’t see it in him. He’s just the class clown. And I denied the wedgie!
