"The Boxer"

I've been feeling a little depressed lately due to the heavy amount of stress I've been encountering. I usually love going to work because the love of the kids really makes my day better... until today. I was teaching my math class and I had just handed out a fact paper for the students to work on. One little boy, who up until today I thought was incapable of doing anything wrong, was just staring at me as I tried to help him on his paper. Finally he said, "Mrs. Hunter, are you a boxer?" Taken back a little, I said, no and asked why. His reply was, "cuz your nose looks smashed in like a boxers. And like a man's too!"
(pause for laughs)
I am well aware that my nose is "unfortunate," believe me. I even dated someone who I swear made it his quest to make sure I remembered that. ANYWAY! Today was the first day that I had cared about it in a really long time - and the point of this story is it didn't help my mood any :( Sometimes little kids can be a bit too honest. At least this year they've stopped asking me when I'm having my baby...

I never notice your nose, and I am usually what Tyler refers to as the B word, so it can't be that bad!

What!? I like your nose! You are a beautiful girl, therefore that includes your nose, as far as I'm concerned. Not that I'm a nose expert or anything, but I do know what an ugly nose looks like, and yours doesn't fit into that category. While kids might sometimes be brutally honest, sometimes their good tastes just haven't fully matured yet. And as for past dating partners, their negative opinions count for absolutely nothing. :) So there.

Whatever, you are totally hot. Yeah, kids can be little gremlins. Sometimes I get scared that they'll come alive at night and try to eat me. Oh wait, that's termites. Anyway, yeah. One time I was at the store and this little girl pointed to me and was like, "Mommy, she looks like a LITTLE kid." And she was like, 5.
