Yesterday, during reading groups, I had a very deep conversation with two of my students.  Here is the conversation, which came out of nowhere.
Student 1: "Teacher, you need to get married."

Me: "Oh, I do?"

Student 1: "Yes, because it's what you're supposed to do."

Me: "Hmmm..."

Student 2: "I think teacher is cool and fun, even though she's not married."

Me: "Thanks."

Student 2: "Yeah, I think she's fine not married."

Student 1: "You're right, but..."

Me: "I'll work on getting married.  Ok?  Now, what connection did you have to Junie B. Jones?"
