Comments overheard today, a typical Wednesday:
A girl having a rough day, she was tired and cranky, complaining on the walk back from lunch: "I'm just having a hard day at school. People are being mean to me. Blah, blah, blah."
Several boys having a conversation at dismissal: "I have a collection of skinny jeans. Do you know what color is the only one I don't have?" "What color?" "Red."
