So, I was sitting in class yesterday and a student came up to me holding out her hand. She was holding it like something was wrong with it. She had apparently just sneezed in it. This was our conversation:
Student: Excuse me, do you have any hand sanitizer?
Me: No, why? (the bathroom is just next door to my room!)
Student: I just sneezed in my hand and you know, with the swine flu going around I don't want to catch it.
Me: Speechless. This doesn't happen very often, especially at school. Yes, kids really do say the darnedest things!
