‘Hey, don’t call people pandas!’ – Quote Friday 10/26

The best of this week’s quotes from my elementary students in South Korea (and some thrown in from friends too)

Not a quote but WTH? I read this this morning:

On to the quotes:

A kid arrives and stares at the collection of pumpkins we have by the window:

Kid: ‘Teacher!! Pumpkin village!!!’

***

While calling attendance:

Me: ‘Alicia?’

Kid: ‘She’s snowboarding.’

Me: ‘What?’

Kid: ‘No, I don’t know where she is.’

***

Pointing at one of the kid-made bats on the door:

Kid: ‘Ugly duckling!’

***

Me, to a boy and a girl fighting: ‘Hey, don’t call people pandas! It’s not nice!’

***

The Canadian One, re the giant bug he just killed and my gasp of horror that he’d killed it and not trapped it and released it like I usually do: ‘He had too many legs, he had to die.’

***

The Canadian One re Alec Baldwin’s ever-changing hairstyles in 30 Rock: ‘Does he do that to f**k with me?!!’

***

A grade one kid runs into my classroom.

Little Boy: ‘Today test?’

Me: ‘Yes.’

‘Word test?’

‘Yes.’

‘Omelette? Tea? Peach?’

‘Yes.’

‘YESSSSS!!!’

He was the only one who studied and then got 100% in the spelling test. Awwwwww!

***

The Canadian One and I are constantly saying funny, but adult-centered things to each other.

Him: ‘You should do an adult version of Quote Friday…people would buy that!’

***

This happened:

‘I order burritos online. Burritos arrive at 9:50am, frozen. I take one burrito to school. I spend morning poking burrito to see if it’s defrosted yet. I wait. I poke. I wait. I hold it. I get bored with holding it and put it on my desk. I stare at it. I poke. I deem it safe to eat. I eat it. And that’s been my morning thus far…I watched a burrito defrost.’

and this happened:

‘While walking to school this morning, I saw some kids running across the playground and immediately thought ‘F**k, I couldn’t run like that if I was being chased by a bear!”

***
