At our teacher meeting shortly after, the teacher asked what he meant by "adapted". He explained that this was like how a donkey and a horse could get married, and their baby would be a mule, but two mules couldn't get married.
I choked on my laugh. "I guess that wasn't quite the explanation you were expecting."
"That's why I love this job!" she said.
Still not sure where his mind was going, and I have a suspicion Proposition 8 is all tied up in there somewhere...
