Overheard in a middle school lunch room, Day 1:

Kid 1: “….I get it. You’re talking about evolution, but you sound like a creationist.”

Kid 2: “There’s no such word as ‘creationist’ anyway!”

Kid 1: “Yes there is.”

Kid 2: “Is not.”

Kid 1: “I’m afraid so, and you are one.”

Bell rings, students disperse.

It is now the next morning. The children have spent the evening and over night in the bosoms of their respective families, doing homework, wacthing TV, having conversations around the dinner table, and so on. Now, Kid 1 is standing in the main hallway of the school waiting for class. Kid 2 walks into the building and spots Kid 1.

Kid 2: “Hey, guess what. I’m a creationist!”

Kid 1: “Yeah, I know.”

    I think this is related to the “clinging to guns and religion” gaffe of Obama. Labelling something doesn’t make it go away.
