Too Funny Not to Share!

Today, my eighth graders were watching The Outsiders (1983 movie). The movie has some minor language, so I always give the students the option NOT to watch it. In one of my classes, I’d just told the students that the movie wasn’t mandatory. This is the conversation I had with one boy.

Me: So, if you don’t want to watch it or feel uncomfortable with the language, you don’t have to watch. You may go to the library.

Boy: Are there boobies?

Me: (wide-eyed) What?face

Boy: Are there boobies? Boobies make me nervous.

All I could do was laugh. This is why I love junior high.
