Tales from the 1st Grade: Distractions

Earlier today while a taking a math test:

My Parapro is walking around monitoring the students while I read the test questions aloud.

Student: Ms. Kim your pants are really noisy. They are distracting me....Ponders a moment... I think maybe they are to tight. Do they feel too tight? They're really noisy

A few minutes later I notice the same student covering his mouth and laughing.

Me: Are you still laughing about Ms. Kim's noisy pants?
Student: No. My mind is telling me jokes and it's distracting me.
Me: Oh. I hate it when my mind tells me jokes and won't stop.
Student: Yeah. It's really crazy!
