I go to a high school known for its academics and exceptionally bright students, but nevertheless, we still have our fair share of stupidity.Here are my all time favorite gems that have come out of my fellow classmates’ mouths:
“I swear on my prom dress.“
“I’m not that big a fan of money. I mean, I have to be in the mood to want it.”
“You know what’s funny? How j sometimes sounds like k.” —this was said to me by someone I have never said two words to.
“I can finally move my pecs up and down—it only took me all of Spring Break.”
This quote was directed to me and my short hair: “So… you’re going to wear a wig for prom, right? What color?” —Hmmm, let me think about that… no. And what color? I’m Indian. There isn’t a lot of room for change in the hair color department.
“Hey guys! I just heard the funniest thing in the bathroom” —Nope, no good conversation starts that way.
On King Lear: “I think that Lear had a homosexual desire for his daughter when she was dressed up as the fool.” When asked why: “Because he thinks his daughter is a man and Lear wants men.” —I don’t think that’s what Shakespeare wanted you to get out of his play.
“If I turn my cellphone on silent, do you think the teacher will let me text in class?”
Hope you guys enjoyed that, and if you did, check out this video about the stupid generic things you hear in almost every high school:
Also, quick note, I won’t be posting any poems for about a week or so because a lot of things are happening at school now (from some of the quotes above, I’m sure you can tell that it’s prom season right now), but that doesn’t mean I won’t be continuing on with NaPoWriMo. I’ll probably just be writing haikus everyday instead.
Have a good week everyone! And let me know if you hear of any other interesting quotes 🙂
