Kindergarten kids: Miss N, why do you have two skins?

Me: Hmm? What do you mean?

Kids: Your legs. They have two skins.

Me: Oh, those are called stockings.

Kids: Oh. They're like long socks, right? But clear. Cool.

First Grade kids: Hey, your legs' skin is a different color than your arms. What happened?

Me: I'm wearing these things called stockings.

Kids: Are they tights, but clear?

Me: Yep. And they're lighter than tights.

Kids: Why would you want to wear them?

Me: They're not as warm as tights, so they're easier to wear in the Springtime.

Kids: They're sort of like tights. But they're sort of like long, long socks, too. My Mom wears those things.

Well. You just never know what they're going to notice!
