Chad: Can I ask you a question?
Laura: Of course.
Chad: How old are you?
Laura: (pause) Why do you want to know?
Chad: You look awful young....and small to be a teacher.
Laura: I'm old enough to teach, and I have a certificate from the Board of Education. Besides, being bigger doesn't necessarily make you smarter.
Chad: (gets defensive, because he himself is tall) It doesn't make you dumber, either.
Laura: I agree. The size of your body has nothing to do with the size of your brain.
