A 7th grade boy calls me over to his table. Waves me to lean in and says "Mr. McKinney will you answer a personal question?" I respond "maybe" and wait for the ensuing question. He reiterates, "it's personal". I say "ok"!
He leans in a little bit closer and with all seriousness asks, "How many DNA's do you have?" Now this is in a 7th grade biology class so I was glad to hear the word DNA in the sentence however I thought I might have misheard. I respond, "what?". He repeats "How many DNA's do you have?".
He is a bit dismayed when I lean in just a bit closer and whisper "I have just as many DNA's as you!" I put my finger up to my mouth to single "shhhh...keep it quiet" and move along on my way!
I wonder what that student took away from the conversation. :)
