After running at recess, Mr. Argumentative flung himself into the line with the other boys and girls waiting to reenter the building.
Kindergarten Teacher (trying to comprehend): “Say that again.”
Mr. Argumentative (trying to enunciate better): “I just ran so fast I was like a snot wad!”
Kindergarten Teacher (leaning in closer to the student trying to understand): “How does running fast make you a snot wad?”
Mr. Argumentative (looking at the teacher
as if she were the slow kid trying to explain): “You know. Like those fast cars guys drive. Snot wads!”
Kindergarten Teacher (biting the insides of her cheeks to keep from laughing): “Oh. You mean hot rods.”
Mr. Argumentative (with one eyebrow up and a look of disdain): “You can call them that but my daddy says they are snot wads.”
He just may have a point, eh?
