Do I normally smell, or something?

I volunteer, a couple of times a week, at a local elementary school. It's a Title 1 school and I work mainly with kids who have either a limited understanding of English, or need a little extra help to catch up with their peers. It can be really frustrating, but also very rewarding. It can also have it's moments of humour.

Walked into one class yesterday and a little girl ran up to me, threw her arms around my middle in a big hug and buried her face into my midsection. She then looked up at me and the conversation went like this...

N .... 'Mrs H. you smell really good.'

Me ... 'Well, thank you sweetheart.'

N.... 'Did you take a shower today?'

Hmmmmm ... now I'm wondering how I normally smell!!! :-)

Cheers.

Kids can be brutally honest, but ya just love them anyway.
