Table 9...

The other day at work, I was on the kinder playground with a couple other classes, and mine had just left and was heading back to our room. As they were walking past, one of the kids from room three came up to me and excitedly proclaimed, "Miss Shumway, there are two losers over there!" and she pointed toward the wall that my class was walking past.

Okay, I'm kinda defensive of my kids. I know they're kinda losers sometimes, but I'm the only one who can say that (and I'd never say it around them, because that would be incredibly inappropriate). So, when this girl told me that there were two losers over there, I was like, "That's really not a very nice thing to say. You need to be nicer to out kinder friends." And she looked at me like i was smoking something. So I returned the look of utter confusion, as I tried to figure out 1.) which two of my kids she thought were losers (yes, I had a few ideas) and 2.) why she would tell a teacher that. "OH!! Wait! Say that again!"

"There are two losers over there. One of them is running on top of the wall."
"Do you mean 'There are two lizards over there.'"
"Yeah! Come look!"
"Okay, I'm coming."

No, I probably have a couple losers, but I'm glad nobody in room three has figured it out yet. I think they think we're the cool class.
