Today, while sitting on hall duty I had a funny experience.  This was good because normally hall duty is VERY boring.  One of the custodians said to me, “I thought you were a student.” I just sat there and didn’t know what to say.  He continued, “I saw you sitting and thought, ‘Oh, maybe she’s just taking a break or waiting for someone.'” Now, this was odd for me because 1) I’m over six feet tall, I don’t exactly look like a little kid walking around 2) I was wearing a cami, sweater, dress pants, and heels which is not exactly teenage attire 3) I know he’s seen me on multiple occasions, many times while I am on hall duty or in the teacher’s cafeteria which is not where students are usually hanging out.

I just laughed and said, “Nope, not for a couple of years now.” Sometimes,  I wish really hard that I was just a student sitting and taking a break and not dealing with job hunts, grad school applications, bills, and the multitude of other things that come with growing up.  C’est la vie!
