All in the perspective

B: Mom, my teacher has this book, but her cover looks different.

Me: Yes. Your teacher has a newer copy of the book. This cover is different, but the pictures and words are the same inside. Your mom just has an older book because she's a little bit older than your teacher.

B: No, no, Mom. That's not true...

Pause for dramatic effect

B: You're A LOT older than my teacher.

I figure, at least, my daughter didn't fall down on the ground laughing hysterically about just the possibility of a comparison between her teacher and myself. So, I guess, bad--but not unbearable, right? right? And, A, even with the requisite jokes about how old I am, this teacher out "youngs" us both. I'm pretty sure she was born while I was in high school!!!

Beautiful! Remember back when WE were the YOUNG teachers????

When did we get old btw??? I don't know when it happened, but I don't like it!

For more of a laugh, K, my kids lately LOVE to go through our old IHS yearbook. Their favorite thing to read. The "What if JB and KW spoke in a recognizable tongue?" The boy asked,"What did you two do? Walk around grunting at people?" My response--"UGH"
