On Thursday, September 24, I left my work after almost five years. This is the final installment of quotes from that amazing place--a place where a part of me will always live. I can't wait to see what my colleagues and all those wonderful kids do next.
Colleague A: Yo, you ever just loved salad?
8 year old boy, to me: I'm gonna try to play guitar now so I can ignore you.
Same 8 year old boy, as I raised my arm to point at him: Ew! Pits!
Me: Is 2003 the year you were born? I'm so old!
12 year old boy: You are old. You're from like 1874.
2nd grade boy, at his first visit: Nice place ya got here!
15 year old boy, talking about my departure: I don't cry but...I get achey.
12 year old boy: When you leave, can I have your wallet?
14 year old girl, to me: Did you guys party? I have the heart of a 21 year old.
12 year old boy: Why are you leaving? You've been here for like 700 years. How much money do you have?
