Robin (4th grader): Hello, teacher.

me: Hello.

Robin: How are you?

me: I’m good, how are you?

Robin: Me too.


Robin: Here.  (He gives me a piece of candy)

Me: Wow, thanks!

Robin: *shrug* (too cool to respond)


정원: Hello.

me: Hi. How are you?

정원: Okay.

Long pause.

정원: Teacher, candy! (Meaning, give me the piece of candy that I believe you owe me every single day).

me: Nope, I don’t have any candy.

정원: Teacher, CANDY.

me: No.

Pause.  정원 sighs very heavily, as I’ve greatly disappointed her.

정원: OH MY GOD.
