I was on recess yard duty today when a kid walks up: “Hi! Do you remember me?”
Honestly, the only kids’ names I remember are the ones that are memorable for all the wrong reasons. This kid didn’t jog any of the incidents I usually write about so I asked for a hint.
EW: I’m Ear Wax! Remember? You gave me and (another name/face I don’t remember) the nicknames Nose Hair and Ear Wax!! That was REALLY funny!
His new buddy standing next to him is nodding his concurrence about the funniness factor of that day.
Me: Ahhh! Yes, I DO remember that. How are you and Nose Hair doing this year? Are you still friends?
EW: Yea! We still are friends except he’s in a different class this year.
He then ran off, I assume looking for Nose Hair.
