“I want to tell her.”
“No, I’m gonna tell her.”
“No fair! You got to tell her Sarah was absent.”
“So? I saw it first.”
“Uh-uh, I did.”
“Whoa! Guys, look! The garbage truck is here!”
“That was so cool.”
“Did you see when that bag fell out of the back?”
“Yeah, that was awesome.”

“You have paint on your pants.”
“Yes, I know, thank you.”
“Did you sit in paint?”
“Yes, I did.”
“Teacher, there’s paint on your pants.”
“Yes, I know.”
“Whoa, did you know you have paint on your pants?”
“Yes, thank you.”
“Teacher, I think you sat in paint.”
“Yes, thank you. Can I have your attention everyone, please? Okay class, listen, yes, I have paint on my pants, and yes, I sat in it. Can we all get back to work now?”
“Whoa! Can we see it?”
“What color is it?”
“You tell her.”
“No, I’m not going to tell her. You tell her.”
“Uh-uh, she’ll think I was looking at her butt.”
“You were looking at her butt.”
“No I wasn’t! Tim was. He told me about it.”
“Then Tim can tell her.”
“No way, man, I’m not telling her.”
“You saw it first, you should tell her.”
“So? You’re a girl. You should tell her.”
“Fine. I’ll tell her.”
“Hey! How’s everything going over her? Do any of you need help? Do you understand what you need to do?”
“Yeah, no, we’re good.”
“Okay, then let’s make sure we get to work.”
“How come you didn’t tell her?”
“I dunno. Shhh, I’m trying to work.”
Huh. Art teachers.
