First of all, thanks to all who have commented in regards to my crisis in my last post. I think I am going to wait it out a bit, contact the Apple store, and go from there. At least I still have access to a computer I can use at home. It just might be awhile before I can do anything with pictures or music for now.
On to today's topic. I had my group of fourth graders for math today and one of my students kept referring to me as misses. Her brother and cousin did the same last year, so I am kind of used to it (and partially ammused as well). But, I thought it was a teachable moment to discuss the difference between "Mrs." and "Ms."... From there, here's the breif conversation I had with a different student as a result....
Me: Am I married if I go by "Ms."?
...one would think the teachable moment would end here... but the conversation continues as I am writing problems on the board...
K: Are you getting married?
Me: Not right now.
K: Have you found a man to marry yet?
Me: No, not yet, K.
*sigh... I can only imagine where this will go*
K: How come?
Me: I don't know. I just haven't found the right guy yet.
Me: You tell me.
K: Well where have you been looking?
Me: In all the wrong places I guess.
K: I guess. Maybe you need to look in the right places.
Me: Where would the right places be?
K: I don't know.
K: I know what kind of woman I am going to marry.
Me: What kind of woman, K?
K: A Spanish woman. (completely random comment)
*end conversation ... divert back to math*
I always look forward to talking with this student. You never know what he is going to come up with. This student also asked me what my sister and brother-in-law did for their anniversary this summer. He remembered that they were married the previous summer.
I hope every one have has a wonderful weekend!
