A Conversation Overheard
I recently had to fill in for a fellow co-worker at another school and overheard a conversation between two First graders:
boy ~ Are you going to sit by me today?
girl ~ NO!
boy ~ (Sad) Why won't you sit by me? I want you to.
girl ~ You know why I won't sit by you.
boy ~ Please, I won't do it!
girl ~ No, I don't trust you.
boy ~ Please, I promise not to do it. Please, I want you to sit by me.
girl ~ (Hesitating) Okay... BUT, if you do that disgusting thing, I am going to move and NEVER sit by you again.
boy ~ (very happy) I won't! I promise! I won't do that disgusting thing.
I wanted to ask the girl what he had done that was so disgusting, but could only look around to see if anyone else had heard the conversation that I had just heard.
I just giggled as they left the serving cart.
