Some highlights of the trip:
Explaining to the kids what plutonium-238 is. Turns out I'm smarter than I thought I was.
Explaining to the kids that they couldn't do the flight simulator because it costs money.
Eating a hot dog on the mall for lunch with Peter.
Taking this picture.
The low point on the trip was the bus ride home. We were three to a seat and Jonah and Yvonne were getting restless so I handed them my iphone. When they got bored of playing games, they started to look through the pictures. All the sudden one of the boys yells, "Jonah's looking at sexy swimsuit pictures!"
All the kids crowd around the phone which at this point was out of my reach. Then I remembered the joke pictures I took with some friends at the beach.
This picture being passed around a school bus of 7 year olds was humiliating on so many levels. First of all, who keeps a picture like that of herself on her own phone? Second, because the entire front of the bus started chanting, "Sex-y Lad-y." I didn't know what to do, there were two options as I saw it. One of the scenarios would end in me using my Christmas Story voice, "aw come on guys give it back give it beeaaack." The other scenario involved me using my mom voice, "give me the phone back, I'm gonna count to three." Either way I would look ridiculous so I just whispered to Jonah to hurry and get my phone back, which he eventually did, but not before the teachers figured out what happened.
