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.
