Me: Look at Mrs. Partner in Crime when she's talking.
Pixie: Wow, nice glasses.
Me: What were the directions?
Pixie: I love your rings.
Me: Look at my face. Am I happy or sad?
Pixie: Wow, where'd you get that necklace?
Teeth grind, deep breath, it is only the second week of school.
Then, tonight I sat in my Stats class and tried really, really hard to pay attention. I really want to know this stuff, and I really want to do well in stats, and I really tried to focus on what my professor was saying. But she was wearing this adorably cute dress and I wondered where she got it. And then I wondered if I had time to buy a new dress for back to school night tomorrow, which made me wonder what I would wear to Back to School Night, and all of a sudden I had no idea what was going on with the numbers, graphs, and squiggly lines on the board.
Pixie and Me? Not so different after all...
