overheard at my 6th grade guys small group

only three this time; but they’re beauties. these are word-for-word quotes i jotted down during my 6th grade guys’ small group last night.

6th grade guy: the best thing about this past week was that we shot a deer on sunday.
me: oh! was it named bambi?
6th grade guy: no, it was bambi’s mom.

guy 1: the best thing that happened this past week was that i found out how to make money.
guy 2: earn it? or print it?

me, after a particular guy got up for the 2nd or 3rd time to go to the bathroom: do you even have a bathroom at home?
6th grade guy: who needs a bathroom when you have a backyard and a shovel?

  1. 1) what’s he doing in the bathroom? (okay, nobodyanswer since that could spin out of control)
    2) how are you going to respond next time he’s headed toward your backyard or asks to borrow a shovel?

  2. just read Deuteronomy 23:12-14…apparently we’re understimating your little OT scholar,

    “Designate a place outside the camp where you can go to relieve yourself. As part of your equipment have something to dig with, and when you relieve yourself, dig a hole and cover up your excrement. For the Lord your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you.”
    Deut 23:12-14
