Overheard

Well, before I came home from work early due to the onset of seemingly yucky flu, I spent a little time sitting in the school office with the naughty kids. They had a fabulous conversation. It was hilarious. Picture, if you will, three 7 year old boys. Grubby, despite the indoor recess. Legs not quite reaching the floor while sitting in the grown up chairs. Lunchtime.

The conversation:

Me (Lamely): So you boys had an indoor recess?
Boy1: Ya, it's sooooo cold
Boy 2: Its like minus 20
Boy 3: Its like minus 35!
Boy 2: Its like minus 70!
Boy 1: Holy CRAP! (gasps, covers mouth, looks at me in horror)
Boy 2: You can't curse in the office
Boy 1: The office is like church!
Boy 3: The office is like jail.
Boy 2: School is like jail.
Boy 1: But you don't get to go home from jail
Boy 3: And they make you exercise like every day.
Boy 2: That's the part I'd like (pretends to lift weights)

Turns out that the "Holy Crap" kid was in the office for refusing to eat his lunch. Not sure what to other kids had done wrong.

You can get in trouble for not eating lunch?

Well you can't very well have 7 year olds going the whole day without eating. And, to be fair, I don't think he was in trouble so much as being removed from the "recess" portion of the lunch period until he had eaten his lunch. He was allowed to go back to his classroom once he'd finished.
