Well, that was interesting.
Career Day was a blast! I love kids, and had a fun time talking to them all day. I was presenting to groups of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students and they really had some interesting things to say.
A few quotes from the kids:
"My mom says cops like to shoot people. Is that true?"
"Can we see your gun?" (I gave seven presentations... I got a variant of this question at least 10 times)
"Do you get to beat people up?"
"Did you ever get shot?"
"Is your bullet-proof vest really bullet-proof?"
"How many people have you killed?"
"Do cops really eat a lot of doughnuts?"
"Can you try your pepper spray on me?"
"Do you use a bazooka at work?"
"I'm left handed, are you left handed?"
"Whats your favorite restaraunt?"
"Is your police car faster than my dad's police car?"
Although I had a good time talking to the kid's, the highlight of the day was eating lunch with Olivia's class. She was in 2nd grade heaven having her dad sit with her at the table, making sure to tell everyone she knew that "my daddy is having lunch with me." It was an "awwwwwww" moment, to be sure.
