Today, in Class

Upon reading The Scarlet Letter:

Me: So, the townspeople are mean to Pearl because she is the child of adultery.
Kid: What about the other kids? Do they play with her?
Me: Nope. They're scared of her, and think she's tainted with the sin of her mother.
Kid: Oh, so she's like Rudolph?


(I'll let that one just sink in a moment.) :)
