More middle schoolisms

The 8th graders who i share a room with for almost an hour in the morning continually amaze me. Most of the time, the amazement comes from their lack of understanding. Often I am amazed at the level of focus on things of little or no import. For example, this morning:

Why is your hair all flat?
I combed it different.
Tomorrow you should do a comb-over.
Stop looking at my hair.
I'm nah - aht.
Yes you are - quit.
Mr. B it just looks funny.
