The things they say......
Okay, so Runnin' Man is in a gifted program. He is bussed to another school to do all these extra things and he loves it. The only thing is, I sometimes wonder if he belongs.......
While the kids were outside waiting for the bus this morning, I hear them talking about football, and then how the ball was kicked over the fence at school. Knowing that Runnin' Man takes his football to school everyday to play with it at recess, I jump in there little conversation and ask what happen.
Well apparently, they were playing with the ball and someone kicked it over the fence.
Me: Did you get it back?
Runnin' Man: No, we can't go over the fence.
Me: Well I understand that, of course, but did you ask a teacher to get it.
Runnin' Man, with the silliest look on his face: Awwww, I didn't think of that!
Okay, so this is the mind of a gifted child? I thought they were supposed to think outside the box? Apparently his little mind says that he should just wait until someone throws it back over the fence and it'll be there tomorrow. WOW! My child's a real genius!
Me: Sir Talks-A-Lot, do you ever stop talking? I mean, really?
Sir Talks-A-Lot, without even the slightest hesitation and in his best "homeboy" voice: Nope! I love talkin'. It's my thing, Yo!
This sends hubs into a hysterical laugh. I didn't find it that darn funny.
