overheard at junior high camp

i was only at junior high camp, as a counselor, for about 48 hours. but in that short time, i overheard some hilarious middle school boy comments:

*******
during cabin devos at night…
6th grade guy #1: tonight, i was kneeling and praying, and i felt this hand patting me on the head, and i reached up, and no one was there! i think it was god!
6th grade guy #2: oh, sorry, i was patting you on the head, and then i left.

*******

two boys talking while throwing sand into a small stream. as i walked by, i heard one say: yeah, i’m all about science. science and cats.

*******

this one was actually a conversation between me and a kid who’d only started coming to our church a few weeks before camp.
me: how did you start coming to our church?
boy: my brother and I embarrassed ourselves at a funeral because we didn’t know what to do with that nasty bread without the yeast in it, and my mom said, ‘oh, we’ve got to get you boys in church.’

*******

6th grade guy to me: i’m gonna go outside and play with rocks.

*******

boy a: dude, why are you being such a richard today?
boy b: what do you have against my dad?

*******

7th grade boy to our pregnant junior high pastor: you are one rude pregnant lady.

man, i love middle schoolers.
