the littlest degree

In class, we were discussing science and the types of research that are going on every day.  We brought up a wide range of topics, but one of my students remembered that I had studied “something with the ocean” during my undergrad.

“Miss Kivela, you were a marine ocean researcher, right?”
“Yeah, isn’t that what you got your bowl-chers in?”

It took me a few seconds to realize that he meant bachelors, and not bowl-chers.  When I got it, I struggled so hard to keep a straight face and correct him constructively.

Even 5th graders can say the damnedest things!
