Bones The Fortune Teller

The 2nd graders had First Holy Communion rehearsal today. I took another little boy home. On the way, the two boys were discussing a kid named Nick that’s in one of their classes.

A little background, when you get in trouble in 2nd grade you have to move your clip, an actual clothespin clip, to ‘Stop’. If you get in trouble again, you move it to ‘Think’. One more time moves you to ‘Pray’ which means you have to write a prayer and take it home to Mom and Dad to sign.

Yes, we’ve been to Pray… twice in 2nd grade.

Ringo once, where he did not pass go and collect 200 dollars… he went DIRECTLY to pray, when he drew a cartoon of the school blowing up.

Mr. T feels very smug as he never even moved his clip in all of 2nd grade.

And Bones went to Pray once for… I don’t even remember. It was not quite so drama filled as drawing a picture of the school blowing up. I think it was just Bones being Bones too much.

Anyway, so Bones and his buddy are in the car on the way home tonight and the following conversation ensued.

Chris: And you know what? Nick gets in so much trouble. Last week he moved his clip all the way to pray in ONE HOUR.

Me: Wait. Who is Nick.

Bones: You know Nick. Big and tall Nick. Always getting in trouble.

Me: OHHHH! I know Nick. I know his Mama. Wow. Nick gets in that much trouble?

Chris: Yup. He gets in A LOT of trouble. He’s really mean.

Bones: He’s going to grow up and be a Mass Murderer.

Me: *blink*

Chris: Or be a Gangster. I think he wants to be a Gangster.

Bones: Yeah. A Mass Murderer or a Gangster.
