Moments with Joey – Hot, Hotter, & Hottest

Pin It

SCENE 1, INTERIOR. AFTERNOON, FIFTH GRADE CLASSROOM. The teacher is helping a few fifth grade students at the back table on a math assignment during recess. The classroom is somewhat toasty, and the teacher has opened the door and set up the fan to blow in some cool air.

JOEY: I’m hot, Mr. Z.

TEACHER: Oh really?

[The boy thinks for a second].

JOEY: Yeah, hot both ways...if you know what I mean.

TEACHER: Yep, I do. And thanks for the news flash.

[Pause].

JOEY: My mom’s checking me out…

TEACHER: Really? Your mom is checking you out?

[The boy pauses for a split second before looking aghast].

JOEY: No, I mean she’s going to be checking me out of school early, not checking me out.

TEACHER: That’s a relief…otherwise that would be weird.

[The boy giggles and then starts working. After a minute he looks back up at his teacher].

JOEY: I’m hot.

TEACHER: I know, I’ve got the same problem…

[Fade to black].

Ha!

I asked Taylor yesterday if he was hot in his new Camaro jacket. He said no and yes. I had to laugh.

Turn the heat down next week and see how many ways he can use the word "cool".

In 5th grade it's funny. In 6th it starts to get scary and they get really girl crazy. But the girls are too mature by then and not interested in silly 6th grade boys.

Great post!

As long as his mom isn't checking you out!
Joey's pretty quick, but you've got him beat!

Ha ha! "Checking me out" I hear that every day and it always makes me laugh. This was perfect context for it.
