Seventh graders are weird. I played dodge ball with a class today, and after a girl got out, rather than run off to the side, she decided to spin in helicopter circles across the gym.
One boy told me that he has a metal plate in his head, and that it hurts when he sticks magnets to it. I told him to stop sticking magnets to his head. He agreed that it would be a good idea.
He then went on to tell me that the reason the plate is there, is because he got his head caught in one of those bouncy playground toys that sit atop a giant spring. Later a teacher told me that this isn't true, and that the kid likes to make up stories.
