Daily life, 11

So, today's little slice of life is not from my classroom. It's from my cousin. She was talking with her 7 year old daughter about wearing glasses for the first time.

Kristen*: So, what're you gonna say if you get to school and kids make fun of how you look
in your new glasses?

Jakeira*: I'll just tell them I'm sorry that they're intimidated by my coolness.

Oh yeah. I want some of that.

*Kristen and Jakeira are, of course, not their real names.
