I promise, my DD is not making this up...

Conversation with an inquisitive 2nd-grade boy:

"Why don't they call you Miss McMahon? Aren't you Miss McMahon, too?"

Me: "Technically, yes, but my sister started teaching here first, so everyone calls me Miss M. to avoid confusion, since we have the same last name. If either of us was married, we'd have a different last name."

Boy: "Why AREN'T you married already?? Because.... You look like you're 22-something." [she turned 29 a couple of weeks ago]

"Well, I'm not married because I haven't been asked to be, yet."

Boy: "Oh. ... That's a tough one."

Oh my goodness!! My husband and I used to teach 1st grade Sunday School. The kids were divided up at different tables, and we were each teaching a different group of kids. I mentioned something that "Mr. G" and I had done at home, and one little boy grabbed the edge of the table, leaned forward, and said, "WAIT! You...and Mr. G...are MARRIED?" I told him we were. He sat back in his chair and said, "Eewww...that's just gross!"
