It's pretty late (way past my bedtime!) but I actually have something to share.
The students were trying to figure out how old I was. Here's a couple of quotes:
  • "Miss H, you don't look a day over 35!!"
  • "Is it your eighteenth birthday?!"
  • "Well, you graduated from college three years ago, so you must be 23 or 24"
  • "There's no way you're 29, so you must be 27!"
  • "You're not in your thirties yet, so you must be in your twenties, but not older than 25..."
  • "wait, don't move around so much. I'm trying to figure out how old you look."
  • "If we guess it, will you tell us? 22? 23? 24? 25? 26? 27? 28? 29?" Me: "Yep!"

That's high school logic I guess.

I have great students. I've enjoyed them the past couple of days. For the most part. and I have to get to bed so I'll enjoy them tomorrow!

PS Kristin, I'll get the pictures up this weekend :)

Hi Karen. I've stopped by here a quite a bit and had to comment here. When Davin was teaching high school and his students asked how old he was, he always said 40. They knew he wasn't (he was mid-20's), but he never waivered. Drove them nut but amused him. :D Scary part is, that would hardly work any more- he's only got 8 yrs now until he actually is 40!!!
