The real reason kids go to school

Published to Blog on 15 Jan 2007

Friday my daughter relayed something she overheard in the school nurse’s office that day. She went to the nurse because she had scraped her knee a little at recess and needed to get a Band-Aid.

While she was getting “treated” a boy came in who she recognized from another class. I believe that she said he was having asthma-related problems.

As Regan was leaving the nurse’s office she overheard the Nurse say, “Maybe you should go home for the rest of the afternoon.”

To this the little boy responded that he has to stay in school because his Dad says, “You have to go to school. What do you want to be - a Retarded Asshole?!?!”

Regan said she had to cover her mouth to keep from bursting out in laughter as she walked out the door.
