Yet another classic third grade moment...

Friday afternoon I'm sitting at my computer as my student teacher finishes up a lesson. She asks the class to line up, which they do. All except for A. Who, for unknown reasons, wanders over to me. Here's what she had to say:
A: "Mrs. S, you have a really long gray hair right there." (Pointing to my head.)
Me: "Thanks A, I've got a few of them....go line up please."
A: "Yeah, wait, I see some, two, three, four, five, six...."
Me: "Thanks A, you can stop counting now. Line up please."
A: "Why do you have so many gray hairs? Aren't you too young for them? My Mom doesn't even have that many."
Me: "A, line up now."
A: "What's the matter Mrs. S?"
Me: "Nothing, A....I'd just like you to line up now, it's time for gym."

Again, nothing like third graders to share their honesty with you....
