This past Monday, on Presidents' Day, I chaperoned Sari's class on a field trip to Boomers for miniature golf. Ada came with me because she had no school. For some reason, Sari convinced her to wear a school uniform for the occasion, which pleased Ada very much! Of course, she looked totally adorable. :)
The next day, we were chatting and she asked me:
Why is it called a "uniform?"
So I answered that it's because everyone is wearing the same thing.
Ada: Well, I thought that "uni" means one so...?
Me (beaming): That's right! How did you know that?
Ada: You know, like unicycle...
Me: Very good! Well, with a uniform, everyone is wearing the same thing so it's all one look.
Ada: Oh, I thought it was because everyone has to fill out one form to get it!
