Are quail dumb too?
And now for the human news. Middle school cooking class, chapter 2:
We made pot stickers. They were a big success. But food is so much less interesting that footwear.
|One day they will cringe.|
Five of the girls wore Ugg boots and two wore Converse sneakers. I commented on this, in a friendly way, as I have a daughter who attends the same school and alternates between Ugg boots and Converse sneakers.
One of the Ugg wearers, M., pointed to another (apparent) Ugg wearer, K., and said, "Those are Fuggs."
"Yeah," said K. sheepishly. "They're Fuggs."
"Fake Uggs," M. explained.
It wasn't a kind thing to say, but was it mean? When I was a kid, I perceived calculated malice everywhere among my peers. But as an adult watching children, I just see (mostly) casual and careless snottiness.
I wonder. I wonder if childhood perceptions are more acute or just more paranoid.
