Kissin' Cousins

At my baby Jazz/Hip-Hop on Saturday morning, my class and I were talking about our Thanksgiving holiday while we stretched.

"At our Thanksgiving," I told them, "I found out two of my cousins are getting married! Isn't that exciting?"

The most out-spoken girl in the class had a look of complete horror on her face. She has these cute gaps between her teeth, and, with her mouth fallen open in shock, I could see the gaps extended across the entire top row. "How are your cousins getting married?!?!"

Awfully judgey for a nine-year-old, I thought. Until I realized that, of course, she thought my cousins were getting married to each other.

  1. I'm disappointed that you weren't more careful about your usage with young children. Make sure they appreciate the joys of the serial comma.
