Frankly, they sound weird IN context.
First off, it was incredibly hot and humid today. Everyone was sweating like a pig, and a lot of the kids didn't even play at recess, instead choosing to congregate in the little shaded area near the playground.
One of my kids this afternoon said, "No wonder you're so hot-you're wearing pants! Tomorrow, don't wear pants!"
Uh, I think the schoolboard would frown on me not wearing pants.
(And for the record, she meant I should wear shorts instead. If only I could!)
Also at recess, a boy walked right up to me and asked, "Do you have any balls?"
I gave my stock response (yes, I've received similar questions before) of "Excuse me?"
He wanted to know if I had any sporting equipment he could borrow.
First days of school. Always keep you on your toes.
