    Just a funny story for your Friday afternoon.

    I've been showing the kids little clips of Bill Nye the Science Guy when applicable. They *love* them. After one today, one of my girls declared that she was going to grow up and be the Science Guy some day. The boy who sits next to her said, "YOU can't be the Science Guy!" She blew up. "THAT'S SUCH A STEREOTYPE AND I HATE STEREOTYPES! GIRLS CAN BE SCIENTISTS TOO! I *WILL* BE A SCIENTIST EVEN IF I'M A GIRL BECAUSE THAT DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!" Long silence before the little guy quietly said, "I just meant we'd have to call you the Science Lady or something."

    Kids are the best sometimes.

    Wow...poor boy.
    When I subbed sometimes the teacher would leave Bill Nye to reinforce their lesson.

    Too funny, poor guy. He was just trying to point out something small, but you've got to love that girls spunk!
