Jewels like, "My mother lived within the 90's," “I'm feeling toxic, child kitty,” and “OK, yet i am nonetheless a dragon.”

Although she swore she’d bear in mind those gem stones endlessly, in 5 mins they'd vanish, by no means to be heard by means of human ears back. So she grew to become a covert anthropologist within the underground international of youngsters, and commenced rigorously cataloging them, and has been gracing the Twitterverse together with her findings ever since—such as:

“When I went to the chainsaw shop I observed somebody with actual bubble gum.”

“There's a wolf in my tummy and a porcupine in my bum.”

"I do not care approximately time outs. I simply care approximately my life."

"Who are me?”

“I love David Bowie. I’m going to marry David Bowie.”

Preschool gemstones is a set of the main strange, hilarious, jaw-dropping issues overheard at Leslie’s college. by way of turns candy, sinister, and naively honest, those treasures end up that children are quite simply miniature those people who are more bizarre and much much less inhibited than their grownup counterparts.
