A conversation I had yesterday with a female student (age 17).
Girl A: Mrs. Andrews, someone said Girl B dresses "classic." What does that mean?
Me: Um, it means elegant, not trendy.
Girl A (to Girl B): So it was an insult, then.
Me: Maybe to a teenager, "not trendy" is an insult! It actually means something that doesn't go out of style.
Update on the lice situation: we had to spend 4 hours on Miss Pink's hair on Wednesday night because we didn't do a thorough enough job on Wednesday and we had some bugs that had hatched. I think we're almost through with it, though. She has been a real trouper--has hardly even complained. I'm going to try to rent Tangled for her tonight--she's seen it but wants to see it again, and I haven't seen it.
