Short and Sweet

Okay, I'm freaking out because the end of the school year is rapidly approaching and I really don't have time to post anything meaningful.  Oh, yeah, and did I mention that my mom is now calling practically every five minutes because she is worried about my husband?  That's right...she's not worried about me, she's worried about him.  Whatever.  It's just as well I guess, as I really don't have time for it right now...but I do have time to post this funny little kid ditty.

Our school decided to have a dance a couple of Friday's ago and they (the Student Council) billed it as a Sock Hop.  Well, on the following Monday, one of my little guys wrote this in his journal:

On Friday there was a sock hop but I didn’t go because I thought it was the thing where you get in a bag and you hop.  So then my mom told me what it was and I said, “Oh, I thought it was something else.”  And then I wanted tickets but they were sold out.  And my mom said, “You had a chance to go but now you can’t.”  I was sad I couldn’t go.

Too funny!  Well, a little bit sad, too, because he didn't get to go, but let's face it, it's mostly funny.  Oh, yeah, and are you impressed with his use of dialogue?  Well, if you're not, you should be!


  1. Have a great day my friend!

  2. I was just thinking that I was really impressed by his use of dialogue. Good teaching!
