Having just shown our super worm, Thunder, to the class and introduced that he is in fact going to be going through metamorphosis soon while becoming a beetle.

Student A: "Ewww yuck."

Me: "Yes, we'll probably release him after. I don't want a beetle in our classroom."

Student B: "Nooooooo! I have him?"

Me: "Sure, you can take him home."

Student C: "Me too?"

Me: "You can share him, one week at B's house, one week at C's house."

*Student B and C whisper about how they are going to share custody*

Student D: "You could just cut him in half."

...

Me: "Then what would he be?"

Student D: *smiles* "Dead."

Almost a wise king moment. Almost.

No spears, but a lot of elementary ninjas and some near mass mutiny. Being the Lord of the Fruit Flies has finally come to an end.

Word of the Week

trash: /tra•sh/ verb. 1. to throw something in the garbage

Example: I trash this?


Side note: This was one of the first things to become a part of my daily vocabulary because, to me, trash had been a noun or only used as a verb to destroy property.
