Things Teenagers Say: Volume 50

Join me today for Volume 50 of Things Teenagers Say. This is my regular round-up of the crazy and memorable things I hear my students say in class. 

My students are complaining that I haven’t posted a Things Teenagers Say post in a while. So, I guess I’ll oblige them.
