Lol! Wish these were the answers I got back in my teaching days! Unfortunately I taught in the inner city and all my students said were swear words....

Here's a true story for you from when I taught pre-school. We had to have a make up day because of snow. I was telling the students that we were having a make up day and one little boy said he wasn't coming on that day. I told him I would miss him if he didn't come to school and he said, "I ain't wearing no make up to school!" I nearly fell off my chair :)

Kids are so funny! They just come up with the craziest things!

Funny how those are all perfectly logical!

I love Harold's response! Just goes to show, kids have very logical minds, that haven't been corrupted by society.

I hope when I become a teacher I get answers like that, probably not since I hope to teach High schoolers, but one can only hope.
