These were compiled by Amy, one of my fellow MAs. She wrote stuff down that she thought was funny starting very early in the year. I have reprinted her list with her permission:
"That's the day all the grandmothers choose to die." Beth, 9/5
"Can we burn some sage in here?" Ryan, referring to our office, 9/7
"I don't know about that pink t-shirt" Mary Karen, in response to Aaron being a boy, 9/20
Julie: "Mary Karen, I can't focus here."
MK: "That's the state of the world" 10/12
Mary Karen: "Some motherly advice: this is a wooden floor. If you need to move your chair, pick it up, move it, put it down again. Otherwise, you will be condemned to refinishing wooden floors in the first circle of Hell."
Jaime D: "I don't remember that in Dante."
Mary Karen: "If Dante had wooden floors, I'm sure he would have included it." 10/24
