Overheard at Work, vol. XVIII


Five weeks into summer and I am so tired and ready for my vacation next week.

Some days, it literally feels like the walls of the place are going to come crumbling down.

Good thing these kids are so fucking funny.

It means I can leave on a Friday night, after a rough week, and remember exactly how much I love my job.

"I have hard thingies."--a nine-year-old boy, referring to the resilience of his testicles, as his friend shot Bay Blades(?) at them.

"I'm bringing Sesame Street swag back."--a fourteen-year-old peer leader, commenting on his trendsetting Elmo shirt.

"You look ugly without your glasses!"--an eight-year-old boy, being brutally honest as I rubbed my eyes one day. When I protested, he said, "I'm sorry. I just had to say that!"

"She called me stinks!"--a peer leader, pouting after I told her she stunk at Hangman.

"What's your favorite thing to draw?"--an eight-year-old girl to an eight-year old boy, who was uninspired in Creative Writing and Drawing.
"Nothing...GUNS!"--his response.
