Okay, so this year I started ninth grade. Woo-hoo, yay, etc. Now, there are a few people who, when I hear them talk, I can't help but think, "How did he/she GRADUATE FROM GRADE SCHOOL?"
After hearing these quotes, you'll wonder the same thing.
Oh, and keep this in mind: I'm in NINTH grade.
From a girl in my English class: "Where's Tokyo? Is it in the world?"
This second one requires a bit of explaining.
An ocarina, for those of you that don't know, is a wood-wind-type instrument. You play it kind of like a flute, but it sounds like a recorder. The ocarina in this story is small and kind of round, and looks like a rock with holes in it. There are seven openings in it altogether: Four holes on the top, one on the side that you blow into, one on the bottom where the air comes out, and another on the bottom that you keep your thumb over whenever you play it.
Anyway, my friend is playing a few notes on this ocarina, when this incredibly irritating girl starts yelling at her to play it for the class. My friend sits there, no doubt wishing this girl would be temporarily swallowed by the earth, while Little Miss Obnoxious keeps yelling. Then she changes the subject and starts asking what, exactly, the ocarina is. My friend says two or three times that it's an ocarina.
So, Genius Girl (the same one who thought that Tokyo was located on another planet), pops up with, "So you play it underwater!"
Ocarina-Toting Friend goes, "Huh?"
Tokyo-isn't-in-the-World Girl: "It's an AQUA-rina!"
This one was overheard in math: "Why do we learn math and science at the same time? It's the same thing!"
Ooh, and my brother said this one. He has to pick up the floor when I vacuum, and he ALWAYS leaves stuff, like coins and stuff. So one time I stopped, picked up a dime, and told him, "This can't be vacuumed up."
His excuse for not picking it up? "I wasn't looking!"
That's all I can remember for now.
