Student: During my band time you should text your brother [his band director] to harass him.
Me: No, I'm good.
Student: You should steal his cat!
Me: He doesn't have one...my sister does. His wife is allergic.
Student: You should leave the cat at your brother's and steal his wife!
Student: Do you get what I'm saying?
Me: Ummm...I don't think *you* understand what you're saying...
