Wasn't  quite sure what he was saying through the sobs, but it sounded like "forgot to duck" - then saw the bump on his head growing as we spoke, so sent him to the nurse with no further questions.  Never did find out the whole story...
Two first grade boys...

"I'll race you to that yellow thing" (pointing across the playfield)
As they take off running I hear:
 "Wait!  Which yellow thing?"
"The white one!"

 I think the second guy may still be trying to figure where they're racing to.
Trying to figure out where the downed soccer player was hurt, I asked his friend what he hit (meaning his arm?  head? elbow?...) I guess what should have been the obvious reply came: "the ground".

Walked right into that one...
Asked a sad looking girl, standing in the rain holding her coat, what was wrong.  "My coat is full of wet".
5th grade girl trying to get the point across to her friend about just how ugly the neon pink jacket was that her mother wanted her to get:  "No - you don't understand.  This was "stick out in the crowd" pink..." 

Wanted so badly to tell her my hope is that someday soon she'll WANT to stick out in the crowd!
Kindergarten boy (about his 2nd grade sister): "Mrs. Y!  My friends are chasing my sister and I don't like it!"
Me: "How does SHE feel about it?"
Boy: "She likes it"

Haha! Poor kid - pretty sure this wasn't the last time he'll be having this conversation.
Said in the most adorable and innocent Kindergarten voice after a friend was mean to him:  "Danny isn't bad.  He just forgets to be good sometimes."  

Don't we all?  And don't we all wish our friends could always be this forgiving?
"Chasing boys makes you thirsty!"
(Sounds more like a Bud Lite commercial than an 8 year old's playground request to use the drinking fountain...)
