Kidisms.... kind of...

The recent hallway game that my class plays while waiting to go into PE or music is telephone.  I whisper a message into the ear of the first students and then he or she passes it on to the next child in line.  The object is to send the message all the way to the end of the line and keep it intact.  So far NONE of the messages have made it to the end of the line without being humorously twisted.   However, even with the twisted messages, the funniest part of the activity is watching their confused faces as they listen intently and try to decipher what was whispered into their ears. Yesterday, I thought I would pee my pants I laughed so hard. I had just sent a message along the line and was standing watching the kids pass it along, when I noticed that Lexie turned to whisper the message into Kaitlyn's ear, but instead of cupping her hands around Kaitlyn's ear, she cupped her hands around Kaitlyn's nose.  Kaitlyn simply stood there with Lexie's hands cupped around her nose! But, when Lexie started whispering, Kaitlyn got the strangest look on her face.  I don't know if it was because Lexie had really bad breath or if she just realized that her nose instead of her ear was cupped.  Lexie was totally oblivious to the fact that she had her hands cupped around Kaitlyn's nose.  I started laughing so hard, and was barely able to tell Lexie that we don't whisper into one anothers' noses!  The silly class hadn't even noticed what was going on until I pointed it out!
