Yesterday was Rachel's first day of school (FDOS). She's starting high school (Do I feel old? Yes.) at a new school and does not know a single person in her class. Yes, she was nervous, but I reassured her that many of the other 500+ freshmen in her school feel the same way.
On the eve of the FDOS, our dear friend Marcy gave Rachel some excellent advice: Quote Monty Python movies.
If Rachel declares "Your mother was a hamster..." and another kid chimes in with "And your father smelt of elderberries!" then she knows she has found a kindred soul to hang out with.
You can give this wise advice to your kid as well. Of course, if your kid is not a fan of Monty Python, they probably won't be able to correctly answer to "What is your favorite color?"
"Blue. No! Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed!"
Your kid will have to fill in the blank with their own personal weirdness.
