Da Dumm Tssh
I used to work at a math and reading center for little kids, around elementary age, and they were always curious about my life outside of the center. What my classes were like, if I had any roommates, how difficulty was my homework. A big curiosity was if I was dating anyone and what they were like. Every new batch of kids would ask so eventually I crafted prepared responses. The conversations then went something like this…
KIDS: Do you have a girlfriend?
ME: I do
KIDS: (all excited) ooohhhh, what’s her name?!
ME: Chemistry and we have the best carbon dates.
And so for the longest time the kids there believed I was dating someone named Chemistry while the other co-workers would just role their eyes.
