Oh the Things They Will Say....All Grown Up

During recess on a sunny afternoon this week a couple of my more observant Kinders noticed a blemish on my chin.  They were curious enough to ask what it was and I simply told them.  Then Mrs. Stallings, my colleague from the classroom next door, further mentioned that when they become teenagers they might experience a blemish or two themselves.

The teezer bedeezer in me couldn't let a good moment slip by and I teased, "See, you guys didn't know that Mrs. Pearce is still a teenager, did you?" 

I. immediately protested by saying, "You are NOT a teenager.  You are a grown up!" 

"I'm a grown up?  When did THAT happen?" was my response.
To this she matter-of-factly replied, "When you turned 100."
