They’re all taking like downers or something!

Working at the school keeps me pretty well amused most days. The school is small so all ages from the babies in daycare to high school seniors are all in one building.  My favorite part of the day is when daycare takes the babies for a walk through the hallways in the 6 or 8 kiddie stroller.  There’s just something about seeing all those Native babies with their big dark brown eyes looking at me while I smile at them as we pass each other. It makes my heart melt every.single.time. But anyway… my office is in the high school/middle school wing. Yeah… it’s interesting having an office right next door to 6-8 graders.  I actually preferred when the high school students were down this way. Those middle school students are – wow – there are no words.

Back to the point of this entry…

I took a walk to grab a Diet Coke for a little caffeine boost because I somehow forgot about coffee this morning. On my way back to my office I passed some students looking at poetry written by 7th & 8th grade students.  One girl says to the other, “Oh my gawwwwd! These are all depressing! They’re all taking like downers or something!”  It took everything in me not to bust out laughing. First at the “oh my gawwwwwd” then at the downer comment (I totally could hear myself saying they same type of thing as a teen). I think I’ll take a walk after school & read some of the poetry to see if its really depressing or if she was just being overly dramatic.
