Kids who tell it like it is. This is why we go to school.


 Preston must have had insect genes in his blood because wherever he went or whatever he did, it had something to do with insects. Spiders, Walking Sticks, Praying Mantis, Scorpions, he loved them all. Today was his first day in school and of course he stuffed a few of his "friends" in his desk and made sure they were comfortable before paying attention to the task at hand. The teacher wanted all the students to write a small letter of introduction to the class to start the school year. Preston was excited to let everyone know what he liked best of all, so he penned this short sentence on a clean sheet of paper. 

"Hello, my name is Preston and I love insex."

 Don’t know anyone who doesn’t.

Ha! Pretty good play on words...was that intentional?

I love bugs myself.

You gotta love that.

Definitely not intentional, the kid was only 5 years old and didn't know how to spell insect. It's from a collection of true kid's sayings from my book Kids Who Tell It Like It Is. Most of them are hilarious.
