Recently my team hosted our final academic pep rally. One of the activities at this pep rally was a relay race. Since the theme was based on auto racing, we had each team design a car out of a box. My cheer stuff had to be moved into different boxes. For a few days, the seat cushions were piled up on the floor. (These are your basic plastic covered pads with advertising on one side.) The following conversations ensued.
Me: Watch out so you don't trip over the seat cushions.
Few minutes go by.
Kid: Miss, are those life jackets?
Me: Yup (Thinking "Are you serious?")
A day or two go by.
Me: Quit goofing around and leave the seat cushions alone.
Kid: Miss, you said those were life jackets.
Me: No, you said that. Do you really think they would float since they have holes in them?!
And, this is the future of our planet.
