Quoting Another Art Student

The following is a conversation that took place near the end of the school day with yet another third grade class.

Third Grade Student X, aka Governor, and other students at his table, discuss colors of yarn being used in weavings.

Student X: "Most girls like pink. Mrs. Gordon, do you like pink?"
Mrs. G: "Not really."
Student X: "Why?"
Mrs. G: "I don't know..."
Other students: "You're a girl."
Mrs. G: "Yeah, maybe I don't like it because most people think all girls like pink."
(My striped shirt I am wearing with sweater shrug over it actually has a hint of pink. :) )

Student X: "Do you like... (orange, blue, green, etc.) purple?"
(I mention colors I like to all students at the table.)

Mrs. G: "Somewhat... my husband really likes purple."
Mrs. G: "Yeah, it's okay. Having a husband is a good thing."
(I'm thinking, as opposed to other standards he may see or know in the world.)

Student X: "I thought you were a teenager."
Mrs. G: "Well, how old do you think I am?"

Student X: "43."

Hahaha!!! :D

Yep, a 43-year-old teenager...or was that his second guess? That if you weren't a teenager after all you must be 43? :D
