Teacher: "Put your papers face down on your desk. Leave them FACE DOWN."
Kindergarten boy lays his head face down, on his desk.
Line of kids in hall, mildly chatting. One girl suddenly bellows: "I'M THE ONLY ONE BEING QUIET!"
Teacher: "What's a safety tip in the kitchen?"
2nd grade girl: "Don't touch the stove while you're standing on a ladder because you might fall on a pot of boiling water."
