Miss or Mrs.

Here are few recent conversations with the little girl I used to nanny:
S: I don't think Ronald McDonald is human.
Me: Why do you say that?
S: Have you seen those feet? They are huge.
Me: Yes, they are pretty big.
S: I am thinking he is a Sasquatch or something.
Conversation 2:
Me: Are you standing on a stool?
S: Ya. It's not like I am standing on a midget or something?
Me: I think that is the funniest thing I have heard you say!

My first embarrassing moment as a new teacher:
I was at my school on Monday trying to organize my classroom when the janitor and the Principal came in to check on me. They asked me if they had got the Mrs. Bybee thing right. Now I didn't see this spelled out in a bubble above there mouths as they asked, so I just heard "Misses" and said "Ya that's right". They asked me a couple more times to make sure this was right. Obviously I need a refresher on the difference between Miss and Mrs.! It has something to do with a ring on my finger.
The next day as I am going into my classroom I look on my door and it says: Mrs. Bybee
Art Teacher. That's when it clicked. So I proceeded to tell the janitor and the principal that I didn't understand what they were asking. I tried to make a joke about it just bieng wishful thinking. The janitor then said, "Be careful what you wish for."
