I was asking the kids to wait patiently while we were waiting for other students to write what they knew about bees. While we were waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting, I asked the students to sit there and look pretty if they were finished. (Apparently, this class doesn't have much background knowledge about bees.)
One of my boys piped in with, "Why not manly?"
As I smiled, "Sure, you can look manly too."
I then walked and grabbed my book. Should be a good year.
