Student: That's a...D?
Me: Ok. How do you know that?
Student: Because I'm super-smart and I don't need anyone to teach me anything.
Me: Oh, well then you should be the teacher. Teach me something.
Student: Ok. Um...go get me Chipotle!
Me: ...what is that teaching me?
Student: So once you have a family you'll know how to provide for them when they want Chipotle.
Me: I already know how to buy Chipotle.
Student: Well...then get me Chick-Fil-A.
