the day i wore black tights

A week or two ago I wore a dress to school with black tights. I'm not here to tell about how hard it is to keep them from bunching up around my ankles, stupid saggy black tights. The story I want to share is what happened after lunch recess.

I went to pick up some 1st graders for their reading group and some of them were still in the hall on their way in the classroom. One little boy came up to me, pulled on my arm, and said, "Mrs. Bergland, what's wrong with your legs?" I said, "Nothing, why?" He goes, "Because they're black." I looked down and started laughing. I said, "My friend, they're just tights."

This child seriously thought I was turning black. Is that not hysterical?
