Kevin: Ms. Buxton! Guess what today is?
Ms. B: What is today?
Kevin: It's Asian New Year!
Ms. B: It's what?
Kevin: It's Asian New Year! Some people call it Chinese New Year, but that's not fair because we ALL celebrate!

Facial Tissue Worries

Dunn (holding the Kleenex box): Ms. Buxton, is this one-ply or two-ply?
Ms. B: Uh, I have no idea.
Dunn: Oh. (takes a Kleenex, looks at it) It's two-ply.

"Ms. B, did you not sleep last night or is that just make up?"
"What do you mean?"
"You've got big bags under your eyes."

I'm too old to be a teacher...

I helped a student with a problem on her homework assignment, and I wrote some of the work on her paper. After we finished the problem together, she erased everything I wrote and said, "It should be in my own handwriting. Just in case you forget."

Then, as an afterthought, she added,

"Not that you're old or something."
