Daily Life, 85

These snippets of conversation come not from elementary age students, but from the college students whom I passed while walking on campus this week....

"My Dad died when I was 12.  In theory, I guess I should've been told, but my Mom never told me..."

"Well, the purple shirt and green tie, that was enough--but the fact that he was also wearing white pants..."

Makes you wish you could hear the rest, doesn't it?
