Hiding My Ego {Slice of Life Story Challenge}

We are back from dinner for a few minutes.  The girls are telling riddles and jokes to each other with lots of giggles.  We get a text another part of our group is ready for us to come over for make your own sundaes.  We gather to walk over together and I notice one of my girls is wearing sunglasses.

Me:  "E, do you know it's dark outside?  Do you think you need to wear your sunglasses?"

E:  "I'm hiding my ego!"

We all burst into laughter.  High schoolers are clever, cute, and full of themselves.  The best part was everyone laughed.  This trip is about building a community.  I hope moments like these will help them through their season. 

Thank you Two Writing Teachers for organizing this Slice of Life Story Challenge.
