Today I was talking with a woman who works in an elementary school about the effect of sex ed on one of her 5th graders.
Apparently he was causing problems in his classroom, so she pulled him into the hallway to ask him what was going on.
“I just can’t do my work today,” he declared dramatically.
“Well, why not?” she asked.
Confident in the unassailable excuse provided him by his newfound knowledge he replied, “Because of MY PUBERTY!”

Funny! Makes sense to me. Puberty sometimes gets in my way when I need to get some work done:)

This post caused me to chuckle. It led me to think of a friend of mine who is a grade six late immersion teacher. She relayed a story to me about when she performed the role of interim VP of the elementary school. As if dealing with “Puberty” as a teacher wasn’t a challenge, she also had to deal with the repercussions of grade 6 “lipstick parties!”
HA!!! Im going to try that sometime soon!
