I usually don’t post stories about school. But I have two that I need to share.
Story #1 – conversation with a 5th grader about a flexible spending rep that was in the building – for the teachers
S: Mrs. Brixius where is the flex guy?
B: He is on stage, why?
S: I want to know if boys can sign up.
B: It is for teachers.
S: But, I want to know if boys can sign up.
B: It is for teachers to sign up only.
S: Why? I’m flexible, I can put my foot behind my head.
Trying not to laugh or lose control, our conversation ended by me explaining what a flex spending plan is.
Story #2 – this is a conversation between 1st graders and their teacher, while getting a drink
S1: Bobby (changed the name of course) is picking his nose and eating his boogies.
T: Bobby are you picking your nose?
S2: No! (shrugs his shoulders.)
S3 (out of the clear blue): Boogies taste like chicken.
