Okrzyki, przyjaciel!

A true tale of Interacting With the Teens. I had to drop something off at City High for Lucas. On the way in, there were two boys sitting on the steps talking about RPGs, something about how "Get the Amazon Cards, they're the best." When I came back out, I had this interchange with one of the kids.

Kid: Are you a teacher?
Me: No
Kid: Oh, you look sophisticated
Me: No one has ever called me 'sophisticated' before.
Kid: Do you know what 'sophisticated' means?
Me: Yes. I'm sophisticated enough to know that.

Every day I have conversations. Some are just reassuring hi how are yous. Some are technical discussions at work. Some are with my family. Some are with people I know around town who do music. None of them are ever quite as random as that one was.
