Too Much Time on His Hands

Phew!  We made it to Friday!
It was questionable for a little while.
And Mrs. 4444 makes Friday even more fun by letting us all hang out at her place.
Get your fragments together and go on over and jump into the fray.

* You want to be in our family.
You know you do!
If you still aren't sure, well eavesdrop on these conversations -

* "How are your grades?"
"Okay, what are your grades?"
"All A's except for an 89% in one."

"Well, don't be thinking you have straight A's because you are smart.  It's because that school's stupid!  It's a SCHOOL FOR ANTS!"

We know how to build self esteem here!

* Someone (at the school for ants) has too much time on his hands!
"What did you do at school today?"
"Start a club."

"You did not!  What club?"
"Yeah I did.  THE FIRST EVER FOURSQUARE CLUB!  We got a sponsor.  I made flyers.  I'm making posters tomorrow. The first meeting is on my birthday and it's the first club involving a ball to be approved."
"Nuh uh."
"Yeah.........the Ping Pong Club didn't get approved.  The Dodgeball Club didn't get approved."

He's serious guys.  I would show you the flyers he took to school today, if I knew how to cut and paste them on to here.

* "So help me, I don't want to see another girl wearing legging on campus."
"Why not?"
"They are disgusting!  Do girls think that wearing leggings hides everything?  They are horrible.  You can see every bulge.  How would they like it if I wore leggings and they could see ALL MY JUNK?  I'm half tempted to do it."

Please don't!

* Tiny Baby's College Prep Writing teacher spent half the class period lecturing the kids about how they aren't putting any effort into their essays and this last batch was the worst she has ever seen.  More than half the class failed. After 20 minutes of berating (and no one listening), she passed back the essays.
Tiny Baby got a 98%.
His response: "I'm going to go ask her if I can take this class Independent Study or something because it's a waste of my time.  And besides, I'd be doing her a favor.  There are too many kids in the class."

Yeah - he needs more time to make posters for the Foursquare Club!

That's it.  That's all I got.
I'm off to work!
Have a great Friday!

I totally do want to be in your family. Also, I wish I'd went to a school for ants.

FourSquare Club!! I want in! I loved foursquare as a kid.

valerie said...

LOL! Love it! I'd vote in Foursquare. I remember many recesses playing that.

Andrea said...

You had me wanting in with the candy cupboard, but foursquare seals the deal!

That is so funny about the club! Austin has been trying to get the Rugby club approved, but the school says it's too violent. I do remember someone trying to get a ping pong club going too.

Four Square Club; how hysterical! Your family does sound like a lot of fun and I would want to join but mine is kind of fun too...chaotic at times but fun!

Donna said...

Your son sounds like such a character! Good for him starting a fun new club like that and for getting such good grades and for calling girls out on yucky leggings!
