The teacher took a day trip with friends. She was shopping when an elderly lady approached her and asked,
“When you go to the hair dresser, what do they call that?” The lady pointed to her hair.
The teacher asked, “Do you mean the style or the color?”
The elder clarified, “What do they call that type of perm.”
“Oh“, the teacher replied, “This is not a perm, it is my natural hair.”
The old lady called to three of her friends. They gathered around the teacher in awe exclaiming, “That’s natural!”
The teacher purchased cookie dough from a fund-raising group at school.
The prodigy noticed the cookie dough sitting in the freezer and asked, “Are you going to make cookies this weekend?”
The teacher sighed and replied, “Probably not this weekend.”
The prodigy quickly asked, “Are you sure?, It’s a long weekend.”
The teacher made cookies!
Last weekend the teacher & I decided to go see a movie. As usual, we invited the prodigy to join us, but he declined.
I remembered something I needed to do while I was getting ready and I walked by his room in my underwear.
He spotted me and asked, “Are you going to the movie like that?”
“No.” I replied, “But is that why you are not going?”
He smirked, “No, but that would be a reason not to go.”
