While substitute teaching today, 5th graders have been finishing up their PSSA's. (A huge standardized test where students must *GASP* sit in silence.)
Of course, I am asked to watch a 5th grade class at the very end of the day & of course, this is at the students' peak of rambunctiousness. Never fear, Miss Miller is here!
I notice, as the teacher leaves the room, there is one small redheaded, freckle-faced boy with a mischievous grin, who was particularly wound up, as I constantly had to remind him to siiiiiiiiit dowwwwwwn. Finally, I had to ask him...
Me: Buddy, is there like, a bug on your chair? You have ants in your pants? What's wrong with your chair, huh?!
Boy student: I can't sit!
Me: Duuuuude. Siiiiiiiiiiit.
Girl student in the front row: You're officially my favorite sub!
Me: Oh, why's that?
Girl: (Picture a Hermione from Harry Potter sorta voice) Because I don't like him!
Me: (Trying not to laugh) Why not?!
Boy: (Mischievous grin reappears) We dated.
I later was told by several girls that almost all of them had "dated" this boy. Aye yi yi...
