For some reason, today was full of strange and hilarious quotes, many of them in the form of a question to me.
First, one of my kids came up and asked me, "Um, is it ok if you get hand sanitizer on your face?"
Seeing that this was not an exercise in theoretical wondering -- he truly HAD gotten hand sanitizer on his face -- I replied, "Well, it's not going to kill you... but they do call it HAND sanitizer and not FACE sanitizer for a reason..."
This is the same kid who later came up and told me he had somehow gotten water on himself, and could he go to the restroom to clean it off. I handed him a paper towel and told him to sit down.
Later on in the day, I was walking around observing the kids playing a math game. I say that in the most generous terms, because while they were supposed to be playing the math game, some of them were mostly just chatting, and as I walked by, I got pulled into the randomness.
"Have you ever almost been in a coma?? I have!"
I find that sometimes it's best to just look away, pretend to see Ghengis Khan, and wander over to the doorway.
