This happened yesterday, but I thought I would save it for today.
Kids just say the funniest things.
So a Grade 2 student walked up to a staff member and was pointing to their mouth and gap where a tooth was.
S: Look, look!
T: Oh you lost your tooth?
S: Yes, the cemetery pulled it out.
T: Oh, you mean someone in the office.
S: Yes, the cemetery helped pull it out as it was just dangling.
Of course we all know what the student really meant, but too funny all the same.
