My students find it very irritating that I don’t know the gender of my baby AND that I refuse to tell them what we’re thinking about naming it. Here was the latest exchange today.
Student: So you really don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl?
Student: Do you know what you’re going to name it?
Me: We have some ideas, but they’re top secret.
Student: Really? You’re not going to tell us?
Me: Nope, we haven’t even told our parents our ideas!
Student: (appreciatively) Ooh, that’s sassy!
