Ms. vs Mrs. and Miss Lacey's Skills

Today I had one of our school counselors teaching my 7th grade classes. I overheard this conversation between the counselor and two students.

Student 1: What is your name again?
Counslor: Ms. ________ (name withheld for the safety of the counselor) :)
Student 1: I can never keep it straight...what is the difference between Mrs. and Ms.?
Student 2: Ms. means "I'm not telling" (meaning I'm not telling if I'm married or not)

I thought it was pretty funny!


I also heard another funny thing while the counselor was talking to the class...

Counselor: For most jobs you have to have a college degree. I got a masters degree and got a job. Miss Lacey went to college and she was able to get a job.
Funny Student: Well that's because Miss Lacey has skills!
Counselor: What...I don't have skills?
Funny Student: Well I don't know about that. But Miss Lacey has a lot of sweet skills!

Oh the things they say to make me feel good about myself. Such a funny kid.

Thanks for the note. I'm glad we can still keep in touch through blogs. Neil knows that you said 'hi' because he checks our blog more than I do. I'm just the one who updates it. Too bad Allegiant Air doesn't fly out of SLC. We would be up there much more often! Tell us the next time you will be in AZ to visit family so you can stop by to see us to!
