The Darnedest Things

I had my kids create a mock resume for Career Week last week. One student listed under qualifications that he has great abs. Another wrote that he is able to hack into other computer networks. I told him that it is probably not a selling point to admit that he is committing crimes when applying for a job.

A student told me that his dad told him to go out with fat girls because they buy you anything you want. *Picture me giving him the stink face here* Why of all things would you tell your child that? Not respect women, treat them like you would want someone to treat your mom or sister but you mean to tell me that the best advice you can give your kid is to tell him how to manipulate women? 
I told that my student that I didn't agree with that advice and that he needed to work and pay for his own stuff. I hope he tells his dad.  

I overheard one student telling another student
"Boy! You get in trouble every single day! You might need to get baptized again."

My students are also writing a research paper and they had to write down their topics that they chose. One student wrote "ho daddy". I asked him what was a ho daddy and he told me that it was a mythical creature but all I kept thinking was that this sounded like an another word for a pimp. I Googled it and ho daddy is a slang term for someone who likes to surf and hangs out on the beach but I like my definition better.

I recently had to do something that I dreaded facing for months and turns out,
it wasn't so bad.
I got through it.
And I am still alive.
