I'M ON A BUS RIDE WITH 45 STUDENTS AND NO BOOK, AMA

  1. Where are you going and why?
    Suggested by   @quixotic
  2. @quixotic We are going to see a play called New Kid. It's about a boy who moves to a new country and has to adjust to everything, including a new language.
  3. Where you going Miss Amie?
    Suggested by   @jannychan
  4. @jannychan ^^^ to the Children's Theater of Charlotte. I always feel better and more hopeful about life after seeing one of their plays.
  5. You can read books in a moving vehicle?!
    Suggested by   @Boogie
  6. @Boogie Sometimes! Sometimes not.
    I think today I could've.
  7. Is there a seating plan on the bus?
    Suggested by   @jannychan
  8. @jannychan Not really. We let the fifth graders sit in the back. I made my third graders sit up front. I'm in the middle.
  9. Are the kids sleeping on the way or are they crazy excited?
    Suggested by   @karlalucia
  10. @karlalucia I'm between - they're all chatty but not too loud.
  11. How many days has it been since you washed your hair?
    Suggested by   @justjills
  12. @justjills Damn, Jill. Such a perfect Amie question. Last time I washed it was Sunday.
  13. What was the last play you saw on your own?
    Suggested by   @karlalucia
  14. @karlalucia I went and saw Into the Woods that one of my old youth group students was in! It was probably two years ago.
  15. Georgia to Charlotte seems like a hike for a play? How many hours?
    Suggested by   @notme
  16. @notme I live in Charlotte! The bus ride is 40ish minutes.
  17. That curly haired girl a couple of rows back - are her glasses as cool as they look?
    Suggested by   @Equivokate
  18. @Equivokate Yes! They are an amazing color of blue and I love them and tell her that all the time.
  19. Have you seen the movie Speed?
    If so, are you prepared to be the spunky Sandra Bullock character?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  20. @andersun I LOVE THE MOVIE SPEED AND I'VE SPENT MY ENTIRE LIFE PREPARING TO BE THE SPUNKY SANDRA BULLOCK CHARACTER!
  21. Are we there yet?
    How was the show? Did the kids like it?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  22. We made it! We watched it! We loved it!
    The character from another country spoke English while the American kids spoke a gobbledygook language! It was heavy for my third graders but very awesome.
  23. On a scale from library to rave, how loud is it on the bus?
    (Can you hear me?)
    Suggested by   @andersun
  24. @andersun It's around a mall food court level with occasional bursts of a foul-ball-is-coming-straight-for-us-at-a-baseball-game.
  25. Are the two students sitting behind you on the bus as adorable as they look?
    Please tell them I said Hi from 🇬🇧
    Suggested by   @Diplomatic_diva
  26. @Diplomatic_diva Yes! They are two of my favorite boys. The one in the aisle seat just got back from a trip to London and he's now obsessed with all things England!
  27. What's your favorite book?
    Suggested by   @victoriaedel
  28. @victoriaedel My favorite book is Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
    It's high fantasy and I tell people it shifted my moral compass and I think about the characters and events nearly daily.
  29. What percentage of children on the return trip are now speaking the gobbledygook language?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  30. @andersun I think at least 20% will be trying to speak it for the rest of the day.
    Sushi! Nax! Hoop shlam!
  31. Is anyone doing those diarrhea chants? Those were all the rage on bus trips in third grade!
    When you're driving on a bus and you're guys making a fuss, DIARRHEA DIARRHEA
