Sometimes I tutor math at a high school in Boston. These are the conversations I’ve been having as of late.

Teenage boy: I like having you as a tutor
Me: Aw, thanks!
Teenage boy: I had a tutor before but it didn’t work out.
Me: Oh?
Teenage boy: She was really hot and I was always distracted. I don’t have that problem with you.

Teenage girl: Are you married?
Me: No
Teenage girl: What about a boyfriend?
Me: No
Teenage girl: Are you going to be single forever?

Bloody kids.
