The Super Substitute....

So I've been subbing all this week, as you all know. I gotta tell ya...I'm having a ball. I've got the older kiddos for one class and then I head over to the lunchroom for grade school moniter duty. I am soooo loving it!! Yesterday I had THE-BEST conversation with a table of 5th grade boys. Went a little something like this:

Me: Hey, you've got a cool Spiderman lunch box there!
Kid: My mom got it for me.
Kid 2: Yeah, but Harry is waaaaay cooler cause he can kill Spiderman.
Me: No way!!! Harry died in the movie kid!!
Kid 3: Uh-huh. He lost his memory too.
Me: Yeah but he got it back just in time to save Peter. He gave his life for his friend.
Kid 4: I like Superman and ummmm Lunch Lady Ma'am I don't think Harry died.
Me: Spiderman could soooo kick Supermans butt kiddo! And yeah, he died. He jumped in front of a bomb blaster.
Teacher walking by: Oh my goodness..who died? I am soo sorry to hear it!
Me: We're talking about Spiderman and the Green Goblin.
The teacher gave me an odd look and kept walking.
Me: I speak boy!!!

Yep, just another day with my peers!
p.s. Spiderman does rule by the way!!!
