Kids Say The Darndest...Well, You Know (Part Whatever)

It's been a very, very long time since I posted any of the funny things kids have said to me (or each other) at the library. It's been a long time since I posted much of anything, in fact, and I'm not happy about that. Someone from internetland was actually nice enough to email me and tell me she missed my blog posts, which blew me away and also made me sorta sad, because I miss them too. Since becoming a manager at my library, I've had a lot less time on my hands, a lot more stress, and a lot fewer cute kid moments to enjoy and share. But the good news is, these moments do still happen!

SO, I thought I'd do a round-up of kids quotes to remind myself of the lighter side of the job. Some of these I've tweeted already, so if you follow me on there, I apologize for any crossover. Either way, I hope you find them amusing.

Kid, to me: "Today was the best day of school ever. We didn't learn ANYTHING."

Kid to another kid: "It would be really cool if I could turn myself into Darth Vader."

Kid, to me: "Some people have said that being a grown up is torture. Is that true?"

Kid: "Hi!"

Me: "Hi! Where've you been lately?"

Kid: "Enjoying the world!"

Someone's got to, kid. Someone's got to.

Kid, to me: "Your eyes look like a vampire's eyes. But in a good way."

Kid to another kid: "Oh yeah? Go look in a mirror. It'll break in TWO SECONDS." Sick burns are still alive and well in Brooklyn, NY.

Kid, carrying a huge stack of books: "These books are making me lose my balance."

YOU'RE WELCOME, KID.

Tween: "I wrote a story."

Me: "That's so great!"

Tween: "Well, I didn't PUBLISH it yet."

Me: "It's still great!"

Tween: "I GUESS."

Eleven years old and she's already suffering from publishing malaise.

Kid, to me: "Do you control the library?"

NO ONE CONTROLS THE LIBRARY, CHILD. THE LIBRARY CONTROLS US.

And my (admittedly biased) favorite:"You are a good woman and beautiful." - what a kid (who's learning English) slowly said to me after I made her a library card. I'LL TAKE IT.
