Conversations of third graders
G1: Will you please consider being my friend?
G2: No. (As she rolls her eyes)
G1: Fine. (Walks off tearing up)
G3: You guys were best friends. What did she say that made you so mad?
G2: She said something that really hurt. She called me a freak.
G3: If that's the worst you have ever been called, you have had a really nice life.
