I heard a couple of boys in my 8th grade class talking and heard my name mentioned. I asked them what they were saying about me. Here's how the conversation went...
Student #1: Miss Lacey, we were just talking about how skilled you are at sewing.
Student #2: Yeah, you're like a pro. Do they have sewing as an olympic sport?
Me: Why yes, they do. I'm on the U.S. team.
Student #1: They have a U.S. Olympic Sewing Team?
Me: Yes. I'm a gold medalist.
Student #2: That's sweet! So you and Michael Phelps hang out?
Me: Yes. We play golf together in the off-season when we aren't training. See how cool I am?
Student #1: How does one train to be on the sewing team?
Me: I just sew stuff and unpick it. It keeps my fingers strong.
Student #1: Wow, you're so cool!
Me: Yes, I am. Now get back to work.
Me: Yes, there's one in the cup by my computer.
