Overheard at Work, vol. LXX

I just got home from the annual music showcase, which featured nearly 100 musicians from after-school programs around the city, including 15 of our kids.  We had eight kids, including a percussionist, two background singers, and a keyboardist, play "Forget You" by Cee-Lo. Then two rappers took the stage for the transition, and we ended with a 5-piece band playing "Sweet Child o'Mine" by Guns N Roses.


I can't even put to words how amazing it was.

I am so proud.

12-year-old, while playing a game of Apples to Apples: I don't like Snow White. Snow White is like the wackest princess ever.

Me, to an 11-year-old girl who seemed to be in a funk: What's wrong?
Her: I'm just depressed all of a sudden.
Me: Is it the program? Is it art? Is it school? Is it Mom?
Her: No. it's probably that stupid puberty thing.

Lateral lisp kid, raising his hand: Raise your hand if you've ever been Rick-Rolled!
