The U.S. Olympic Sewing Team?

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.

5 minutes later...
Student #2:  Miss Lacey, do you have a sharpie I can use?
Me:  Yes, there's one in the cup by my computer.

5 more minutes later...
My very own gold medal in sewing.
Go Team USA!

I'll give you a gold medal along with a piece of key lime pie with a hot pepper in the middle of it. Just ask Carie about that one. I was a little jealous last night and told her I was going to give you a piece of my mind, which would be like eating a piece of key lime pie...with a hot pepper in the middle. Yeah...maybe you had to be there. LOL, love you girl!
