Friday Funnies- A Linky Party!

I  know there are a TON of linky parties out there, especially ones that happen on Fridays.  It something about the words "Friday" and "party" together- BUT... my kids just keep saying these funny things, and it would be a shame not to share.. and you can't really do Monday Funnies, Tuesday Funnies etc.. it just doesn't sound FUN, so that's why I  had to come to the decision to make it Fridays. So welcome, Friday Funnies!!

 Friday Funnies will be a weekly linky party to share all the funny things that your little ones said throughout the week.  So, if you're like me... dust off that journal- you know, the one you got to write down all those great moments, but haven't used..  and keep track of all those funny moments.  Who  knows, maybe one day we could compile them all into a book :)

Here are a few of my funnies from the week!

Other Teacher: Mark* asked me if I saw the hump in his hair and asked if I liked it.  He said his mom did it for him.  He is just too funny.
*10 minutes later at recess*
Student: Hey Ms. G!
Me: Hey Mark!  Heeeeeeeeyyy, you have a bump in your hair!
Student: No, It's not a BUMP, its a HUMP
Me: Oh, I'm sorry, you have a hump in your hair!  Did you do it?
Student: No uhm my mom did last night.  
Me: Oh, you asked her to? 
Student: Yeah! She did it when I was sleeping with her hairspray.
Me: Oh, you didn't do it this morning? I'm surprised it stayed like that through the night.  She must have some pretty strong hairspray.  Is it suave?
Student: Yea, I think.... It's got a green top.
Me: Well it looks pretty neat.  What made you want to put a hump in your hair?
Student: Well, Patricia Polacco has a hump in her hair!
Me: Ooh, I see.  How did you know that?
Student: Well I saw her pictures.
Me: Cool!  Hey, maybe you could be an author like her!
Student: No, I'm not an author, but Patricia Polacco is!
Me: Yea, but I bet you could be if you really wanted to.  
Student: Yea.  Do you want a hump in your hair?
Me: No, I don't think it would look as good as yours.  I think I'll stick to just looking at yours.
Student: Yea, not everyone looks good with a hump like me.  It's windy. Is the wind blowing my hump away?
Me: Well, a little bit but not much. It's still there.  That hairspray is holding on strong.
Student: Oh! Ok.  
Me: Why don't you go play?
Student: No, I don't want my hump to be blown away by the wind.  It's time to go inside now?  It's pretty cold.

(Side note: The entire time I am talking to this student, he he walking trying to look back at his shadow to see his "hump")

This precious little boy was so serious about his cool Patricia Polacco "hump" and he came sporting it again today..touching it every once in a while to make sure it was still there.  Oh how I wish this little bundle was in my class!

Ok- last Funny...

Student: Ms G (talking very slowly).. I feel draaaafty
Me: You feel drafty?  What do you mean you feel drafty?
Student: You know, like dizzy and light headed
Me: Ahh you mean DROWSY
Student: Oh Yea! That's it... (And skips off COMPLETELY FINE)

So there are some of my funnies from this week.. I hope you decide to link up and share some of your own! :)
 P.S. Since this is my first linky party, I am testing out using Text links- but will switch to pictures soon.. I promise!!
