From Siberia to Serbia

While celebrating different cultures on a daily basis, I overheard this conversation between two children discussing my nationality:

Child #1: "Hey, Mrs. M. is from Siberia!"

Child #2: (With a look of disgust) "No she's not!"

Child #1: "Where is she from then?" (mocking tone)

Child #2: "She's from suburbia!" (superior tone of voice)

That my friends, was my laugh of the day.
Believe you me when I tell you that the children are the best part of my job.
