I know you like them. 🙂
We are practicing irregular verbs in the Preterite (those who have taken Spanish know what a pain in the behind those verbs are) when a student suddenly explodes.
Student: I don’t understand how everybody else is just guessing these conjugations!
Clarissa: They aren’t guessing, Andrew. They are consulting pages 267-8.
Student: Pages 267-8 where?
Clarissa: In the textbook.
Student: How did everybody just know that they had to look at pages 267-8?
Clarissa: It was our homework for today.
Student: Our homework? Where do I find the homework? Do you post it online somewhere?
Clarissa: It’s in the syllabus.
Student: Oh, the syllabus. . . I had no idea I was supposed to keep it. Do you have an extra copy?
