still laughing! Thank you for that! I like, "sounds like you know how to spell it" and math is for maniacal laughter, and so many others

Haha! Kids!!! I taught mostly 16 and 17-year-olds, and I sometimes I had written down some of the stuff they said. Loved how one student told you to "get a move on"! :D
