Part of what I love so much about my job is the conversations that I have with my students. They inspire me, awe me, and sometimes just crack me up. Today was another example of this.

I was talking with a student and giving him some background knowledge and some words he'd probably need help with as he read the Magic Tree House book, Monday with a Mad Genius (about Leonardo da Vinci). I told him that he lived a long time ago and he replied with, "1999?"

I smirked. "No, earlier."

"The early 80s?"

"No, the 1500s. That was over 500 years ago."

"Dang, I wasn't even born yet."

I just smiled and walked away.
