Why I love Parent-Teacher Conferences

Guardian: So did {student} tell you about his trip to Florida?

Me (laughing): He said it was “fine.”

Guardian (surprised, disappointed): He didn’t tell you that he spent everyday in the ocean?

Me: Nope. But you know that “fine” for him means, “I had a fantastic wonderful time, Mrs. Crumpett!!!!”

{We laugh}

Guardian: Well, I have to tell you this, before we left, I found him in the basement, lifting weights.

Me (my turn to be surprised): Really?

Guardian: Yes, and he told me that he was “working on his ‘beach bod.'”

{We laughed, and laughed}
