This Is How I Imagine This Meeting Must Have Gone

“Alright, people, we’re here to hammer out the details of our reciprocal museum membership program for our respective museums.  For our part, if someone is a member of your museum, they’ll have full access to our museum; they just won’t get the complimentary planetarium tickets we provide to our own members.”

“Sounds good to us.  And for our part, if someone is a member of your museum, the adults will get in free.”

“‘Adults.'”

“Uh-huh!”

“So . . . if our members come to your children’s museum, the . . . adults get in free.”

“You got it!”

“You have no idea what “reciprocal” means, do you?”

“Not a clue!”

I Know What She Was Going For, But Still . . .

Today in my son’s virtual school:

Teacher:  “What’s the same about these two eggs?”

Class:  “The shape!”

Teacher:  “What’s different about these two eggs?”

Class:  “The color!”

Me (thinking):  Since this is a Martin Luther King Day lesson, I see where she’s going with this.  The important thing is that they’re both eggs.

Teacher:  “But even though they’re different colors, they’re both the same on the inside.”  *cracks open the eggs and pours their insides into a bowl*  “See?”

Me (thinking):  That escalated quickly!
