In a conversation with a new class of sixth graders…
Me: … and it’s important to remember I am MISS Jorgensen since there is also a Mrs. Jorgensen at our school.
Student: You aren’t married? Really?
Me: Nope, I’m not.
[Male] Student: Good choice Miss J, I am never getting married either. Girls seem like they would be a lot of work. And don’t forget about the cooties.
Yes, let’s not forget the cooties, haha.
