I learned the name of the kindergarten girl who told the pirate joke the other day. Here's how I found out:
"Most people with my name spell it S-o-p-h-i-e, but my parents figured out a better way to spell it; S-o-f-i-e."
Then, later, I was telling the kids that they could impress their parents by saying "perspire" instead of "sweat." To this, Sofie replied:
"That won't impress my parents, my dad screams like a college girl when he sees a spider!"
