Conversation* today, in my room after school is over, with the custodian.
We see E walk by, who yells, cheerfully, "Good night, Christy!". She just recently got engaged to another teacher in my school.
S, the custodian says, "Someone should tell her that she shouldn't be so happy. Tell her that it's getting married that really begins the aging process."
I say, "Yep."
S says, "Heh. Then comes kids. You reaaaaallllly start to age once you have kids."
I say (in my head), "Then those babies die. You really, really start to age once they die."
I say (aloud), "Yep."
*if conversation means that he complains about life and how bad the students are while I try like crazy to get my work finished so that I can go home and nod or grunt at appropriate pauses in said conversation
