Went to lunch with Gavin today. The second graders were funny and cute as usual.
They were telling jokes--- jokes that I remember telling when I was in grade school.
"Are you P.T.? " one child asks me.
"Oh, I know this joke." I tell him. "I don't want to answer. Either way is not good for me." I consult with Gavin.
"Mom, say you are PT, that is the best one." Gavin instructs, sweetly watching my face to make sure I am not injured by the response.
Then a similar question, with a 2000 year twist.
"Are you my BFF?"
I think I am pretty sure what that means in texting, but you never know what the 2nd grade twist will be.
So that you are not caught unaware yourself, I will give you the cheats that Gavin whispered into my ear.
"If you say yes you're a buffalo fire fighter or a big fat friend. If you say no.....well I guess your not the best friend forever. Go with not the best friend, mom. It is mean, but you can still be a good friend"
