From today’s exams…

SCENE 1

Me: “¿Avery, Cómo se dice ‘student’s desk’ en español?” (How do you say “student’s desk” in Spanish? The answer is spelled "pupitre", and properly carries the stress on the second syllable).

Avery: “Poopy tray.”

(Several minutes of rolicking and puerile laughter ensues from the class)

Me (after finally calming the class down): “Euh. Hmm. Well, no. Try again, and put the stress in a different place.

Avery (looking confused): “Poopy traYYYYYYYY?”


SCENE 2

8. Ana sonríe mucho.

Please write #8 in English

Amy’s answer: Eight



Sigh.

Heh. You've got to give the kid wise-ass points, though - it was a very clever (though "DUFUS!"-worthy) response to the question you asked...

p.s. - thanks for turning off the damned visual verification. I was going crazy not being able to comment on my favorite blogs....

Too funny. Reminds me of an email I got once of some funny exam answers. They were chock full of gold like this. :)

OK - that was so funny that I a) began sort of shrieking/laughing and then b) woke up the cat.

Thanks for making my night.
