Fruity

I spent most of my kindergarten class time sitting with a very confused little girl. She is often pretty spacey and seems unable to focus on any tiny thing for more than a few seconds. So I was trying to give her as much attention to her stitchery as I could. It really wasn't going well.

Forty minutes in, she whispered, "I have a whole banana in my pants." My thought was that she might next tell me that the sky is green or something, so I just had her proceed with her work. She whispered to me again, "I have a whole banana in my pants." I was starting to wonder if she was telling me something of importance. Did something happen to her with a banana? Is this code for something else? So I referred her across the table to her class' instructional assistant, thinking she would get more information than I.

It turns out that girlfriend did have a whole banana in her pants. A badly bruised, smushed up, nasty banana. Ew. No explanation for why.

Hello Jan! Little ones do the strangest things. Hopefully the banana was just an innocent oddity by an easily distracted little girl. Hope you have lots of VERY relaxing plans for your summer break. I think some rest and relaxation would be a good thing!

Your blog looks so nice!

What!!!! OMG this almost but not quite beats our turd left in the middle of our kindergarten floor during a recess this last year. The resulting investigation was priceless.

I love those little kindergartners. A banana in the pants, I would have taken as the code word for something of the brown variety. Lucky for you, it really was a banana. No pockets that day, perhaps!

How funny kids are!!! They sure keep us on our toes and make us remember life in a very different and often humorous way.
