Recent True Quotes

Two wonderful true quotes from my world over the past week:

1. The Boy, watching a weatherman in front of a map of the United States:
"Is he in space?"

It makes perfect sense, if you think about it.

2. One of my students this semester, on the final exam, introducing a paragraph:
"According to me,"

I really liked that. She cited her source, the statement is self-confirming, and it nicely blends humility and narcissism.
