You said, "Gay Parie".

I got a new student today. She's from Guatemala and now she's in my 3rd period ESL class. Which, I would like to mention, is my largest class. Nothing says, "focused, individual instruction," like mass capacity.

When I looked down at her class scheduled, I noticed that she had also been placed in a Spanish class. This set my imagination off like nobody's business. I imagined an American student spending a semester in--let's say--France. Not just any ol' student, but one of my students. I could just see one of my "There/Their/They're" challenged little ones, saying "Excuse me, but I believe you mean 'Wear are you from?'". As if our relations with the France aren't strained enough.
