I was informed today by a child that our president was "taking everyone's money away and is going to make them into hobos."
(Wait, hobos? Consarn it! All riled up on giggle juice, I'll wager! Fetch the railroad bulls and march 'em off to the hoosegow!)
Another teacher said to this boy, "I'll bet your parents watch Fox news."
He said immediately and with gusto, "Yeah! It's so boring!"
Man, I know people enjoy sacrificing reason on the altar of righteousness and greed, but do they have to tell their kids about it?
Oh, and also today a boy looked at my lunch bag and said, "That lunch box sure has a long strap."
I said, "Yes, it does."
He replied, "Let's go ahead and call it a purse."
