A conversation

Former student (now a third grader): Hi, Mrs. Kautzi.
Me: Hi, Chad. (not his real name)
Student: Mrs. Kautzi, my uncle would want to hit on you.
Me: sputtering, stammering, mumbling something in disbelief
Student: walks away oblivious to my befuddled reaction

I assume this is a compliment, but there is a small part of me that worries that this kid is just a couple years shy of a sexual harassment case.  There's also a small part of me that thinks he doesn't know what it means to hit on someone.  I hope?
