The other day I was sitting at my desk, minding my own business, when a student came up and said this:
Student: Ms. McCraw, I’m a nerd.
Me: (blank stare) Okay, and I take it you’re okay with being a nerd.
Student: Yes ma’am, I’m cool. And you know what else?
Me: (blank stare) No.
Student: My friends are nerds, too.
Me: Do they know?
Student: Yes, ma’am. They know.
Me: (actually laughed out loud)
I can’t make this stuff up, y’all. I can.
