i think this will be the last installment of “overheard at my 7th grade guys small group”! our group meets tonight for a final swim party, but then we take the summer off. hopefully i’ll be back with the new “overheard at my 8th grade guys small group” in the fall!
in the mean time, here’s some gems from a recent small group time:
7th grade guy: We didn’t have school today because the bathrooms aren’t working
7th grade guy: We need to have movie night!
another 7th grade guy, totally serious: Can we watch brokeback mountain?
7th grade guy: I learned to play the hardest song in the world on bass: you don’t know you’re beautiful by one direction.
first 7th grade guy: You had school testing on your birthday? That’s the worst birthday ever.
second 7th grade guy, mumbling to himself: I think dying of cancer on your birthday would be the worst birthday ever.
7th grade guy: My low was that I sharted in class yesterday.
7th grade guy: I’ll tell you how to make a great mustache. Step one: do you have a cork?
7th grade guy, after a bunch of them put their feet on the table: I had my feet on the table before it was cool.
7th grade guy: Denzel Washington, the best actor ever. So darn cool. So darn clever.
first 7th grade guy: He died of a flesh eating disease. I forget what it’s called.
second 7th grade guy: Necrophelia?
7th grade guy on why moms are awesome: she has to go through three minutes of agonizing pain to get you
7th grade guy: Have you ever noticed that the bears Elisha called out of the woods to maul the boys mauled 42 of them, and 42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything?
