### Things Teenagers Say: Volume 28

Happy Friday!  We had our first two snow days of the year this week which made it a short but super crazy week.  There's just something about having a four-day weekend that makes kids a bit antsy in the classroom.  Though, I guess it did allow me to miss the post-Valentine sugar rush. ;)  Here's the latest installment of crazy things teenagers say.

--

Ms. Hagan doesn't eat chicken strips. She's not going to bite you.

[Said by a student to their younger sibling to convince them it was safe to enter my classroom.]

--

You bring the ranch. I'll bring the fried crickets.

--

Ms. Hagan couldn't go to China. She'd have to eat cats.

--

Do ovaries make you run faster?

--

I'm going to "common sense" you.

--
Me: You are going to pretend to be a function for us.  Your function is to square whatever input you are given.  Do you understand?
Student 1: Yes.
Me: So, if I say 10, what do you say?
Student 1: 100
Student 2: And, if I say 49, what do you say?
Student 1: Get a calculator.

--

I have to get all A's this semester so I can get a goat.

--

Math doesn't make me nervous. It makes me want to stab my eyes out.

--

Me: Take of your hat.  You know the rule.
Student: But, I have to wear my hat. My hair is........green.

--

Student 1: Are you going to leave us?
Me: I'm not planning on leaving anytime soon.
Student 2: But, if Ms. Hagan left, we might get a more interesting math teacher.
Student 3: I don't think it's possible to have a more interesting teacher.

--

Student: Do you like sour skittles?
Me: No. I don't like skittles.
Student: Ms. Hagan doesn't like Skittles.  Guys, I think we should jump her.
--

People who play bowling are old.

--

I bruise easily. I'm like a banana.

--

--

Does anyone else have a balloon I can suck the helium out of?

--

Happy Valentines Day, you freaking relationship person.

Thanks...
--

I'm going to grow up to be an underground bear fighter.

Student 1: Ms. Hagan, have you ever shot a gun.
Me: No.
Student 2: If she doesn't eat meat, why does she need to shoot a gun?
