They're Onto Something Here...

Boy, things sure were interesting during Catechism today. I can't even remember everything that went on during class, but there was one moment that I won't easily forget...
I believe it was on the first day of Catechism that a student asked my boyfriend where he goes to school. And being the honest guy that he is, he said that he's homeschooled. Apparently none of the students in our class have any idea about homeschooling; they seem to have it in their heads that homeschooled kids don't get to hang out with other people and they therefore don't have any friends and/or boyfriends or girlfriends. This is obviously false because my boyfriend is rather popular, and, of course, if I weren't his girlfriend, I wouldn't be calling him my boyfriend, now would I?
"I do TOO have a girlfriend!" he declared.
"No, you don't!" a female student argued. "You're homeschooled, so you're socially inept!"
"I'm telling you, I have a girlfriend," he laughed.
"Oh yeah? Prove it!"
(This, by the way, is the funny part.)
"Is she your girlfriend?" another student asked, pointing to me.
*Sigh.* "Do you realize how often I get asked that question and how annoying that is?"
"I think you two would be a perfect match."
Oh, the irony!
(Just for the record, my boyfriend and I thought it would be best to not act like we're dating so the students wouldn't hound us with questions about our relationship. They get off-topic as it is, so we don't need to encourage it by telling them about our love lives.)
At some point, my boyfriend asked the students how he should prove that he really does have a girlfriend. So one girl suggested that he bring her to class this Friday so everyone could meet her. One girl even went so far as to say that he has to give her a kiss, which he refused to do because that's really none of the kids' business, so the class settled with just seeing her for themselves. And there's also a wager going on with this: if my boyfriend can't bring in his girlfriend on Friday (which, as we all know, is impossible), he has to give everyone candy; but if he succeeds in getting his girlfriend to come (which, again, is going to happen anyway), some of the kids agreed to giving him something as part of the bet.
I can't wait until Friday. I don't know how my boyfriend is going to reveal to the class that I'm actually his girlfriend, since they all believed the "We're friends" line and I said that I've even met his girlfriend, so they're convinced that there's another girl in the picture. I can almost imagine their surprise when they realize that they've been tricked this whole time even though the answer was right before their eyes.
