Things they don't teach you...

Two first grade girls came up to me on their hippity hops announcing their plan to bounce around the entire play field every day because they  want to be fashion models.  "That's fantastic"  I told them "you will be really healthy!"  Their reply took be aback: "We don't want to be healthy.  We want to be skinny". I took a deep breath (more like several) before I went on.  "Well you will have great muscles and endurance.  Good for you!"  They hopped off, I'm sure  thinking I totally missed the point.  That's OK though.  I didn't miss the point at all - just tried to change the direction of it.
