It really is unbelievable the things that come out of teenagers' mouths. In fact, I should probably have an entire blog dedicated to the things that come out of teenagers' mouths, but I've got to draw a line somewhere.
Today, however, a student in my WASL group inspired me to begin this series...yes, that means I am committing to sharing with the world the amazing things that come out of teenagers' mouths. This is Entry 1, and it goes a little something like this:
Teacher (who shall remain nameless because he was just my WASL partner and nothing else): Have you heard of that family with 18 kids that has a T.V. show?
Me: I HATE that show! Those people freak me out! Although, I did watch the one show where their oldest son got married and I must admit, it was fascinating.
Teacher: Yeah, yeah!!! Did you know that that kid and his wife are expecting their first baby?
Me: Surprise, surprise.
Enter in Student (who has been listening to our conversation): How many kids do they have?
Me: 18. And their oldest is getting ready to have a baby.
Me: Yes, 18.
And here comes the good part...
Student: My God! It's a vagina, not a circus car!
Me: Mouth drops to floor...SILENCE. After all, what left is there to say?
The thing is, I'm not quite sure I could have said it better myself.
